Question Time

When will we get 64 bit Thunderbird builds on Windows. They are built right now for Daily, for example:



Regarding the question on Enigmail/p≡p, the installation will be a single executable file that will include everything if it is installed as add-on. In Microsoft Outlook, a similar p≡p plug-in installation takes 5 clicks and 10 seconds without asking a single question. Patrick/Volker will provide more input on this via the wiki once it is set-up.
