= Releases =
Thunderbird's release schedule <u>tracks</u>, but does not strictly follow**, the '''ESR''' release schedule of Firefox. You can find links to the schedule (with an ESR column), release notes and other release information, at [[RapidRelease/Calendar]].
'** We ship releases when the Thunderbird is '''ready''' based on testing and other factors, not on a date certain. So take any dates you see with a grain of salt - because we will lag by some number of days or weeks, not by a published date.
If you are not seeing the "newest" version at the [https://www.thunderbird.net/ Thunderbird home page] do not worry, it is just not yet ready for release.
