Mint relies on the Ubuntu repos for this, we can't afford to build our own yet. So when it appears there it appears here - I don't know wy this has not happened yet

Back when I was using Ubuntu (Edgy) I followed these instructions to update FF and T-Bird:

http://pykeylogger.sourceforge.net/wiki ... la#Updates

As I recall you break the normal update link in the repository, but you can update to latest as they come out.

I don't know if this is something the development team would recommend and I personally would not do so without some input from them .... well I may play with another test box javascript:emoticon(':wink:'), because now I'm curious.

I found a repository, added it to the sources.list and installed Thunderbird 2.0.

Is this okay, I mean this site doesn´t provide any further information about the packager or the people behind it. I always feel better if I´d more information

It's okay - but as always when you don't know anything about a site - be cautious - some unwanted code could enter your system as you do the update as root
And I don't know if it breaks the normal update as newW2 mentioned

It's in the software portal. I uninstalled the original Thunderbird first before downloading/installing TBird 2.0. Works fabulously, of course.

well, the gutsy package works 100% here, you just have to remove version checking ,
