It was ok to ship a "beta" release of thunderbird but updates shouldn't

Precisely. F11 is supposed to be a stable release. The sudden appearance of both smart folders and indexing was unexpected, disruptive and IMO did not achieve the desired quality level for a Fedora stable release upgrade.


There is a difference between stable and static, if we have a beta of thunderbird in F11, then it expected to change between beta releases. The new search features are very cool, we should be happy someone uses the time to give us all this cool new features.
