it's not a major update, but still an update to another version. The
Ubuntu policy is not strictly against such updates, but you shouldn't
keep an eye on something that "is not affiliated in any way with
Canonical" - . Instead care about
Ubuntu upstream, see on the
right side for "ubuntu", see .

All the details are a little bit too long for this mailing list, but to
understand Ubuntu update processes a little bit better, a starting point
might be

"MOTU Processes

    List of other Distro related processes

    Merging - updating packages from Debian to Ubuntu requiring changes.

    Syncs - updating packages from Debian to Ubuntu without any changes.

    Freeze Exceptions - requesting an exception from the Release Schedule.

    Universe Stable Release Updates - updating packages in stable releases (i.e -updates).

    Security Update Procedures - updating packages for security fixes in stable releases (i.e. -security)."

, the links are available at .

Especially follow the "Universe Stable Release Updates" link and
consider to at least read
and .

Keep in mind, the package "evolution" is in Ubuntu's universe
repository, see .

"Main – Officially Supported, Open-Source Software:

Licence: Open Source
Updates: Canonical provides critical updates.

Restricted – Officially Supported, Closed-Source Software:

Licence: Proprietary
Updates: Canonical provides critical updates supplied by the developers.

Universe – Community-Maintained, Open-Source Software:

Licence: Open source
Updates: Canonical does not provide update.
Some updates may be provided by the Ubuntu community.

Multiverse – Unsupported, Closed-Source and Patent-Encumbered Software:

Licence: Unknown
Updates: Canonical does not provide updates.
Some updates may be provided by Ubuntu community." -

Thunderbird is in "Main" and AFAIK usually provided by default installs
of Ubuntu flavour install medias.

The ubuntu maintainer of the Evo packages may well be on this list, or
known to someone on this list, and worth contacting.

You better search official Ubuntu websites on how to ask for an update,
instead of hoping that the sister-in-law of a neighbour of somebody
subscribed to this list, knows a maintainer and that this maintainer is
willing to care about whisper down the lane bug reports + is willing
trying to enforce the desired update within an Ubuntu release.
