        <p>The biggest security threat these days is that people or
          vendors do not make updates. Many Thunderbird users are
          reluctant to make updates, because they fear regressions. I am
          scared that this message will reinforce the idea of users that
          updates are bad. It is this idea in the user's minds that
          causes the security disasters.</p>

      <p>I don't see anything in that article that is incorrect. The
        message we wanted to get out is that in no uncertain terms
        should Enigmail users update to 78 on their own at this time. 
        When the time is right, the messaging in Engimail will change as
        will our external messaging, and users will be automatically
        updated to 78.<br>
      </p>
      <p>Enigmail is mentioned in the heise article several times,
        thankfully.  If non-Enigmail users think from that article that
        they shouldn't update then apparently they don't know how to
        read.</p>
      <p>That said, if there is better messaging then now is the time to
        provide it.  Ryan's blog post will be going out soon.  <br>
