It's based off the Mozilla 1.7 branch, something around 1.7RC1 I think. So it will have just about anything that's going to happen in terms of new features and speedups for 1.7. However, it is of course missing whatever fixes (which will only be low-risk and/or important crash or bug fixes) go into 1.7 after 1.7RC1. 1.7 is still a few weeks off - that's a good way towards Thunderbird 0.7!
