Switching the default in the auto-configuration Account Wizard has checked in already,
This won't affect existing accounts in any way, and if a default account exists already, its setting will be chosen by default for subsequent accounts created
the last part is still pending Blake's review, though. This can be added in the aurora phase if it doesn't make today's merge deadline, thus hopefully shouldn't be a problem (it only means that you won't see the full feature yet in the upcoming Earlybird builds).

The remaining parts checked in for Earlybird yesterday, thus you should see the change now complete. I've also updated the KB article with further details.

A lot of stuff should also come from the Core side, such as partial support of TLS 1.1 for encrypted connections.
The backend supports TLS 1.2 now, it's not clear to me what is still missing (the fallback from TLS 1.2 and 1.1 to 1.0 for sure, bug 839310), and the default maximum encryption version remains TLS 1.0 with fallback to SSL 3.0 (bug 733647), at least for now, but may be switched soon and possibly within the 24.0 timeframe).

In case you ever worried about those, but Firefox removed the Certificate Revocation List feature for encrypted connections with the 24.0 core code, thus Thunderbird had a dead button in the Advanced > Certificates options which is now removed in the Earlybird builds (bug 892255).

There is still some discussion on the TLS 1.1 and 1.2 support, which is still incomplete, so switching either of those on by default doesn't seem likely to happen for 24.0.
