Multiple security issues have been found in Thunderbird, which may may
lead to the execution of arbitrary code or information leaks.

With this update, the Icedove packages are de-branded back to the official
Mozilla branding. With the removing of the Debian branding the packages
are also renamed back to the official names used by Mozilla.

The Thunderbird package is using a different default profile folder,
the default profile folder is now '$(HOME)/.thunderbird'.
The users profile folder, that was used in Icedove, will get migrated
to the new profile folder on the first start, that can take a little bit
more time.

Please read README.Debian for getting more information about the
changes.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:45.8.0-3~deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
