Thunderbird 60 Released

Post by JerryC58 » Tue Aug 07, 2018 1:54 pm

I believe I read that this is not an upgrade but must be installed from scratch. Does anyone know if it can run side-by-side with my current version (52.9.1) of Thunderbird?

Hello, JerryC58.

As soon as Thunderbird 60 will be available in the official Ubuntu repositories, it will be offered to Linux Mint users as an update installation by Linux Mint Update Manager. I am pretty certain.
This update installation will replace Thunderbird 52.9.1.
Same as with any previous Thunderbird update.

What has been written with respect to the internal Thunderbird updater under Windows, that the 52.9.1 updater will not offer to update to 60 at this point in time, is of no relevance on Linux Mint.

Best regards,
Karl

Can't wait for that! The current version has a major bug I can't stand anymore and I can only hope they have fixed it in v60.

Boy, I can't wait either. But it's going on 6 weeks now. Google calendar integration to Lightning is broken and it apparently is resolved in TB 60. Anyone have a clue when this will be pushed to the repos?

Yeah - I was wondering when/if this is happening. Is it being saved for 19.1 for some odd reason?

Are you using this plugin https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/th ... -calendar/ with Lightning? Was working fine for me on Fedora but I don't have that machine in front of me to verify versions. If you don't have it, give it a try...might help. Installs/removes like any other lightning plugin.
Hope is not a plan
