Since Mozilla has dropped development of Thunderbird, doesn't that also mean 17.0 is the final version? "Since Mozilla has dropped development of Thunderbird, doesn't that also mean 17.0 is the final version?"



Both Firefox and Thunderbird on my desktop computer are running version 10.0.11. I'm on the ESR or Extended Support Release channel. They both report they are up to date and security updates are covered in this version without the need to upgrade just yet. As a matter of fact it will tell me when it is time to move to 17.x.

I didn't choose the ESR channel but have enjoyed NOT losing functionality of add-ons and extensions every time I receive an upgrade as many have who are on the "release" or beta channels. The ESR channel only upgraded every seven versions!



OK, Mozilla/T-Bird has stated that they will continue to fix Bugs, and Security issues going forward, just not doing any Functional/Feature Enhancements. So, upgrading to V 17.0 is a Non-Issue, just do it, it fixes some Security issue, mostly!!!

So, the point is, what more can you do to an E-Mail-Client, it's been in development for eons now, and it works as good as any e-mail Client, period!!!

End of story...
