Mozilla Thunderbird 126.96.36.199 Released
Tuesday June 5th, 2007
Mozilla Thunderbird 188.8.131.52 was released yesterday, offering stability and security updates to the Mozilla Corporation's mail client. This latest update replaces Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 (the 220.127.116.11 version number was skipped to keep up with Mozilla Firefox). The Mozilla Developer News weblog recommends that all Thunderbird 1.5 users upgrade.
The security fixes are detailed in the Thunderbird 18.104.22.168 section of the Mozilla Foundation Security Advisories page. They include flaw in APOP authentication (which also affects the Mail & Newsgroups component of SeaMonkey) and a memory corruption bug (which also affects Firefox and SeaMonkey). The release of Thunderbird 22.214.171.124 brings Thunderbird 1.5's security into line with that of Firefox 126.96.36.199, Firefox 188.8.131.52 and SeaMonkey 1.1.2 and 1.0.9, all of which were released last week.
Thunderbird 1.5 was supplanted by Thunderbird 2 in April but 1.5 will continue to be supported with security and stability updates until Thursday 18th October this year. Support for the equivalent Firefox 1.5 release, which was replaced by Firefox 2 last October, is currently being phased out.
There has been no formal announcement of a new Thunderbird 2 update but there have been various references to a Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 launch posted on the mozilla.org website, including several mentions in the security advisories relating to last week's releases. According to the Mozilla Wiki, the next Thunderbird Community Test Day will test 220.127.116.11 release candidate builds. This will take place on Friday, suggesting that Thunderbird 18.104.22.168 will be made available some time next week.

...is still not available under Linux, even using the Open Desktop standard. Highly disappointed that this hasn't been implemented in such a long time on Linux and has been there since the start under Windows :(
