Update Information:

Official upstream announcement:

I am very happy to announce the availability of Enigmail v1.5. It is precisely a year ago that I announced that I would work on replacing the binary components that depend on Thunderbird with JavaScript code. Today is the moment when the last part of this project is completed and Enigmail is released with (almost) no binary code anymore.

Notable Changes:

* PGP/MIME encryption & signing have been rewritten from scratch in JavaScript.

* Core parts of inline-PGP (creation, decryption and verification) have been rewritten in JavaScript.

* Due to the new code structure, this version of Enigmail is compatible with all future versions of Thunderbird and SeaMonkey. There is a small C++ component remaining for Thunderbird 17 and 18 and SeaMonkey 2.14 and 2.15. As of Thunderbird 19 and SeaMonkey 2.16 there won't be any Mozilla version-specific code in Enigmail.
