Thunderbird 60.5.2 has been released

The desktop email client Thunderbird has been updated to version 60.5.2 on February 25, 2019. The new Thunderbird 60.5.2 comes as an update for all previous versions of the software.

Thunderbird 60.5.2 fixes a crash issue and a certificate verification issue with Outlook emails.

Thunderbird displays an "update available" notification when you start it by default if a new version is available. You may use it to download and install the new version right away.

You may also select Help > About Thunderbird to manually start the process and verify the installed version of the email client.

Thunderbird users who prefer to download the new version manually instead can do so on the official project website.
