    <p>Hi,</p>
    <p>TB 60 ESR is planned for release in mid-May 2018. I haven't
      prepared a list of user-facing improvements yet, you'd have to
      browse all the release notes:</p>

    <p>Important are</p>
    <ul>
      <li>The system will now use the application locale for date/time
        formatting, but you can switch that back to the locale selected
        in "Regional Settings" (56)</li>
      <li>Various improvements to template handling, edit as new now
        uses the account's format (HTML/plaintext), not the one of the
        message (57, 59)</li>
      <li>Outlook import is back (58)</li>
      <li>Various improvements in the attachment pane: Attached messages
        now show the subject instead of "Attached Message" (57).
        Attachments can be re-ordered (context menu, also via drag &
        drop) (58, 59). TB 60 has more attachment improvements, and
        we're working on more which will ship in later beta versions.</li>
      <li>Delete button to remove recipient (60).</li>
      <li>Fresh new look with Photon icons and square tabs (57).</li>
    </ul>
