Improved IMAP caching features using Mozilla’s latest caching technology.

Thunderbird’s built-in chat feature has better Twitter support, including support for Twitter DMs, and liking and favoriting tweets. XMPP tweaks feature,  though Yahoo! messenger support has been removed.

As with Firefox 52, PulseAudio is now required to play sound on Linux desktops.

When removing an email account from Thunderbird you now have the option to remove corresponding data files too. This is helpful for keeping your system nice and tidy.
