I am happy to announce Enigmail v2.1 for Thunderbird 68!

Please note that Enigmail 2.1 only works with Thunderbird 68, and
Enigmail 2.0.x only with Thunderbird 60.x.

Major Changes since v2.0

* A new simplified setup wizard will first try to find out if you
  already used encrypted emails before, and then proceed in the
  most suitable way.
* On Windows and macOS, there is an automatic check for updates
  to GnuPG.
* Autocrypt: implemented key-gossip and updates to known keys
* If GnuPG 2.1 or newer are used, then key creation will default
  to ECC keys
* Interaction with keyservers has been rewritten from scratch, using
  Thunderbird-internal functions to access the keyservers.
* Full support for keys.openpgp.org, which is set as default keyserver.
