@bm456 I have got to a busy period ahead of a holiday at the end of the week, so can't build or test now until early May. I'll post again when I get a chance to test the newer source tarball(s) at that time.

can you test it now?

they've updated it at 05-Apr-2018 12:41, could work now; works fine here with this tarball

The source file should be:

I tried a build this evening (3rd April) and it looks like the source tree is currently busted as the build fails. There are also no builds on the mozilla releases site since the 23rd March so I guess the source files will need to be fixed before successful building is again possible.

Current is now 60.0b2 and the source is at:

Also currently calendar (lightning) is broken in 60.0b2 in that it won't see existing google calendars that work normally in 59.0b2. It is not clear if it is the lightning extension that is buggy but worth watching for newer builds after 5th April for lighting version 6.2b1 or 6.2b2

In current PKGBUILD, pkgver=60.1, but actual source version is 60.0b1. says:

 This (pkgver) should be the same as the version released by the author of the package.

In addition, source is wrong.

here all works, i've updated to 60 (b1).

warnings: for now enigmail & torbidy doesnt work due to their filters (52-55, 48-52 respectively)

I just tried to build this - turned out that the only change needed was in the file thunderbird-install-dir.patch where two lines had the last word moved onto a separate line:

Make the two comment lines that had spread into four lines back to two as:

We thus use INCLUDED_AUTOCONF_MK to enable/disable some parts depending

whether a normal build is happening or whether the check is running.

Then made the build work - at least it is running as I write this comment so will hopefully complete without error.

Build fails saying:

==> ERROR: Failure while downloading

First of all, however, I am skeptical whether we really need the newly added patches, which seem to be intended for disabling some features.

Might wanna update the sha512sum for thunderbird xz archive:
