The following was sent to the tb-planning mailing list by Wayne Mery (he is wsmwk in these forums):

Greetings Thunderbird Community.

Thunderbird 91 is doing well with 6% of users on version 91. And today 91.1.1 shipped with additional fixes. So we are able to proceed with the following plan for the next couple weeks.

Next week *manual* updates will be enabled for users on version 78. A few days after that change, when we have success with more users on version 91, we will then enable *automatic* updates from version 78. (Caveat - some language/locale issues are still being resolved. Until that work is completed, only en-US installs will be enabled for updates.)

As usual, when you find an issue that reproduces in Troubleshoot Mode <> (formerly Safe Mode), please file a Thunderbird bug report <>.

The state of add-ons is quite good due to months of effort by many team members and add-on authors. More add-ons become compatible every week, but as with all new releases there is still work to be done. You can follow the details by using the reports below. Please offer your assistance and helpful feedback in the add-on community, and if you determine a problem is caused by an add-on please report the issue to the author.

A noteworthy new feature from the 91.0 release notes, if an incompatible add-on has a suitable replacement then the user will be presented with a recommendation from this list <>.

Add-on reports:

* Extensions compatible with Thunderbird 91 as seen by ATN. (293) ... -tb91.html
* Extensions which have been lost from TB78 to TB91 (including
alternatives, possible false positives and possible false
negatives). (41) ... -tb91.html
* More add-on reports
