Hello Guix!

I just got the following pop-up on icedove and wanted to inform you all.

*** START ***

Critical Information for Thunderbird 78

If you depend on the security of OpenPGP messages for important
purposes, then please do NOT manually upgrade to Thunderbird 78.0.
Instead, wait until you are automatically upgraded.

The traditional Enigmail Add-on will not be available for Thunderbird
78. As a replacement, Thunderbird 78 will include built-in support for
OpenPGP.

The Thunderbird team needs more time to finalize this work. In version
78.0 it's still an experimental feature and disabled by default.

If you don't depend on the security of OpenPGP for important purposes,
then you are welcome to enable it manually and help with testing.

The stable release of OpenPGP functionality is planned for Thunderbird
version 78.2.

*** END ***

Regards,
RG.

Thanks for this head up. Version 78 should be released somewhere in July
according to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:Home#Latest_release

We have to see when Thunderbird 78.0.0 comes out if it have security
updates. Then we have to update it and people relying on pgp support
have to use inferriors...
