just curious in Thunderbird Debian 11 is this supposed to do something?
Qubes actions for attachments like “Open in DVM” or “Send to VM”
I see that it is maintained but not sure what it’s supposed to do , as I don’t see any open in dvm option, I apt installed qubes-thunderbird package

@marmarek, @DemiMarie: Is this expected to be done in time for the 4.1 release, and should it get the release notes label?
Probably not. Thunderbird 91 came out only recently, and I am still not sure if it supports the needed APIs.
Ok, I suppose I'll move it to the 4.2 milestone then.
I consider this to be worth backporting to R4.1 once it does get implemented, even though it won’t be ready for the R4.1 release. Moving to R4.1 updates.
I also recommend dropping the current extension in R4.1, at least if there is a clear way to implement this. Could old versions of the extension be obsoleted by the R4.1 qubes-core-agent package? To avoid confusion, I would prefer to not ship an extension than to ship a broken one.
Qubes R4.1.0 beta now comes with Fedora 34 which comes with Thunderbird 78.11.0. That means a fresh Qubes installation comes with a broken addon.
Fedora ships with an old version of Thunderbird that is behind on security patches. I recommend using Thunderbird in Debian qubes instead, as Debian does a better job of shipping a recent version.
Does this mean that the extension works by default in Debian 10+ in Qubes 4.1?
No, but once Debian 11 ships Thunderbird 91, this task will go from “cannot be implemented in a maintainable fashion” to “should be implementable in a reasonable amount of time using stable APIs”.
