Mozilla has released the next update for Thunderbird on November 20, 2012, with Thunderbird 17. Changes in this version include the new ‘menu button’ on the right side and tabs are now drawn in the title bar on Windows. Also with this version Mac OS X 10.5 is no longer supported. For more information see the Release Notes. Users will be prompted to update within 48-hours or can go to Help > About Thunderbird to update or manually download and update via the getthunderbird.com site. This is the last planned Thunderbird update for 2012, however if any security or stability issues arise, there may be a 17.0.1 release before the end of the year. The next planned release for Thunderbird will be in early to mid January 2013 with Thunderbird 18.
