There is no such thing as a schedule with "dates that the release team will meet". You can however find a statement about how we operate at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:Home#Releases and references to relevant links for more info.

You must have me confused with someone else.

I most certainly was not complaining. Not about anything. I was merely observing that it was a welcome surprise and I thought that 'you guys' would have mentioned it. Somewhere.

Sorry for the noise.

No plans to provide this in the intial release of version 60. During 60 - a possibility. I'd think certainly for 69.

my guess it'll happen in 69,, but IMO the Thunderbird Devs just shouldnt support the 32bit Arch anymore an focus on supporting 64bit instead,

That's absurd. Perhaps you don't understand what's involved, and what user population we support. Microsoft supports 32bit installs [1], so we actually haveThunderbird users running Windows 10 32bit. And we have a non-trivial population of win8, and win7 32bit users.

Redhat an Nvidia arent supporting 32bit no more an im sure Nvidia have a far more userbase than Thunderbird has. i'd bet Microsft will only support 64bit soon only to, there are probably way more companies that dont support 32bit anymore either, Ubuntu dont support 32bit, i dont think Debian do either. , Fedora doesnt either

Note, linux isn't the majority of our user base by a long shot.

In architectural and support matters Thunderbird follows Firefox's lead. What is Firefox saying about 32bit?

Anyone have any idea when the nightly (61) builds will work again? Best I can tell the last available build is March 21st.

This is dependent on multiple items related getting Thunderbird releasing on taskcluster. There is no ETA, and I expect ETA will continue to be unknown until almost all the taskcluster work is done.

Thanks for the perspective. Last build is working fine, but I suppose one can always build locally if the need arose for some reason.
