The version info is added into your composer.lock file when you download a
plugin from the Roundcube plugin system. Since the download came straight
from git that didn't happen.


I suppose it comes down to what info plugin devs should include in their
composer.json file. Once this new version is released and people get it
through the proper plugin system then version number would show up and
everything would be fine.

I installed the plugin just now and everything looks good. We are running a
stock 1.0-RC in our testing environment. Will give it a thorough test run


Any particular reason why the plugin version information in the
"composer.json" file is missing? Other activated plugins display the version
in the About window. We usual patch this ourselves for the contextmenu
plugin, for example:


  "type": "roundcube-plugin",

  "version": "1.13",

  "authors": [



Minor detail perhaps. Keep up the good work!


Best regards,

Hi everyone,

I am rewriting my contextmenu plugin. The current version is suffering from
being old code which has just been added too over and over.

The new version has a couple of big changes from the old one: firstly the
new code is much more efficient - so it doesn't affect loading times so
much. The other is that the context menu is generated from toolbars and
links in the UI - everything is client side now.

I think this is good because it means the context menu uses the same
functions as the core for popup menus and the folder selector, no code
duplication. It also means that there is less styling and things like that
for me to do and items added to the toolbar by other plugins will
automatically show up in the context menu.

If you are interested please try out the new version (it requires Roundcube
v1.0-RC or git-master) available here
p and let me know what you think or if you find any problems. All feedback
is welcome.
