Thunderbird 68.12.1 released

[English]Another short addendum from last week. The developers of the e-mail client Thunderbird released version 68.12.1 of the e-mail client on October 1, 2020. This is a maintenance update for the 68 main version of the e-mail client, which was offered to me today.

      You are on the 78 branch. I'm still on the old 68 branch – for a short time, the update to 78 was offered, but I hesitated to upgrade. Shortly afterward, this upgrade option was withdrawn.
