According to "About Mozilla Thunderbird" on the help menu, I have
188.8.131.52 (20071022), yet according to apt-cache I have;
wulfy at localhost:~$ apt-cache policy thunderbird
*** 184.108.40.206~pre071022+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.7.10 0
500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com gutsy-updates/main Packages
500 http://security.ubuntu.com gutsy-security/main Packages
500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com gutsy/main Packages
which is the 220.127.116.11 client, which comes from Gutsy-updates/main...
Still, neither the one I have or the one from Gutsy/main is the latest
18.104.22.168. As others have said, there is usually a delay between when
Mozilla issues an update and it makes it into any distribution.
Respect the elders. Teach the young. Co-operate with the pack.
Play when you can. Hunt when you must. Rest in between.
Share your affections. Voice your opinion. Leave your Mark.
