*A quick update 🧵 on the Thunderbird 102 rollout*

We know you're eagerly waiting for your Thunderbird 91 to update to version 102. Thanks for your patience!🙏

Auto-upgrades on all operating systems haven't been turned on yet because we're gathering more data about a few bugs.

It's an overly-cautious approach, but we believe it's the right thing to do....

Dramatically simple.
Never plain.

It's almost ready! What would you like to see in our mobile app?

This week, we begin the serious work on Thunderbird 114. There's a lot to plan, define, and schedule for a year that will bring drastic UI and UX changes.

A lot of the changes may upset some users and amaze others.

Every step of the way, we want to be transparent.

You'll see early mock-ups. You'll hear about plans and proposed solutions throughout the development process.

We'll be writing plenty of documentation and support articles to help users w/ the transition...

Sometimes it feels like people just don't read past the headline. We're teaming up with a design agency to redesign the website, not to just change a color...

Happy to see this published! I think so many people who use GNOME don’t realize the positive impact Endless has had on it over the years, and will continue to have moving forward.

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

Hey @HP, nice move!
Its refreshing to see a Super key on a #Linux laptop.

Certain *other* major OEMs just leave the Windows key on there and feed their users an excuse about it.

Thanks for going the extra mile. These little things matter.

Digital security protects physical safety.

Activism is absolutely vital to a fair and equitable society, and this grim story demonstrates the importance of security for those who risk everything to challenge those in power.

Replace every article about Elon Musk with an article about someone fixing/maintaining important infrastructure. A person repairing buses. A person repairing and tweaking wheelchairs. A person tending to a community garden.
