Enigmail development has ended.  The upcoming 2.2 is the final release
and introduces no new features.  It exists only to help people migrate
to TB78's OpenPGP support.

TB68 is being EOLed this fall.  We've promised to continue to support
users for six months after that, including giving emergency security
fixes to Enigmail if they become necessary: but at six months and one
day we're going to mop the floor, tally up the cash register, shut off
the lights, and lock up as we leave.

(The only exception is a commercial email company that has a signed
support contract with Patrick -- their contract will be fulfilled.)
