I've split the versions of TBird into a thunderbird-esr release, now up to 24.7.0, and a standard thunderbird, now up to 31.0. They can't be installed at the same time, since I also added symlinks in /usr/bin for the programs. If you want to stay with the ESR version, just switch to thunderbird-esr. The symlinks "thunderbird" and "thunderbird-esr" will both start version 24.7.0. Thunderbird 31.0 just has "thunderbird". The new versions should appear in the testing CR shortly.

As usual, please let us know how they install and work. Thunderbird 31.0 will reject the older versions of the lightning extension, but have it search for a newer version and it should find and install Lightning 3.3.

We now have thunderbird-31.7.0 in the CR

This one is mostly security fixes:
High - Privilege escalation through IPC channel messages
High - Buffer overflow parsing H.264 video with Linux Gstreamer
Critical - Buffer overflow when parsing compressed XML
Critical - Use-after-free during text processing with vertical text enabled
Critical - Buffer overflow with SVG content and CSS
Critical - Miscellaneous memory safety hazards (rv:38.0 / rv:31.7)

Changing location in editor doesn't preserve the font when returning to end of text/line (bug 756984)
Inline spell checker loses red underlines after a backspace is used (bug 1100966)

Known Issues:

Copy/Paste into plain text editor deletes newlines from quoted text (bug 1143570)
Importing data from Outlook or Eudora crashes (bug 917961) (Dang!)

Great - Thunderbird finally adds the facility to filter sent mail, first requested 2003. I've missed this since I migrated from Eudora in 2002. Everything works fine here.

The latest thunderbird_45.3.0 is available to upgrade to from the main repo.
We're still on gtk2 so it still installs & runs on MEPIS 11.
