I have read numerous posts and replies on the forum about updating from Thunderbird (102) to Supernova (115) but there doesn't appear to be a clear method used by the majority of users to do this.
In the release notes from 115.0.1 to 115.2.2 it clearly states ' Thunderbird version 115 is only offered as direct download from thunderbird.net and not as an upgrade from Thunderbird version 102 or earlier. A future release will provide updates from earlier versions.'
However, from 115.2.3 onwards, that statement has been removed but there is nothing saying that this, or other updates, will allow you to update from earlier versions!
I am prompted daily about an update to Thunderbird via the release update channel to update to Supernova, the latest version being 115.4.3, see attached screenshot.
I could also download this latest version and run it as an exe file to update Thunderbird and there are suggestions about removing Thunderbird, installing Supernova and then changing/adjusting the profiles etc to get it working.
So my questions are:
1) Can Thunderbird be updated via the release update channel as I have always done successfully, without messing about with profiles etc?
2) If not, is there a release coming that will allow the update from earlier versions?
3) If not, then what is the best solution to do the update successfully?
Thanks for your help.
