68 beta 1 is available.  We are still extremely early in the beta stage, 
so expect many changes and  some rough edges.  It is not necessarily 
feature complete.  And most add-ons will not work - report issues to 
those authors, not in Thunderbird bug reports.

Version 68 introduces profile (data) protections, so you may see 
warnings depending on how you are using beta and profiles. *Please read 
**/release notes: 
//https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/68.0beta/releasenotes//**//so 
you know all the details and gotchas, like:
*

  * _*Note - *__*Thunderbird 68 beta may not recognise an existing
    profile. Workaround: start with the profile manager option -p.*_
  * _*Note - *__*Thunderbird 68 beta may display a message "You've
    launched an older version of Firefox" and will not allow opening a
    specific profile. Workaround: start with option
    --allow-downgrade.*_**(it's profile downgrade "protection" inherited
    from Firefox)_*
    *_
