Dear subscribers

We proudly announce the stable version 1.3.0 of Roundcube Webmail
which is now available for download.
With this milestone we introduce new features since the 1.2 version:

- Widescreen layout aka Three Column View
- Possibility to display QR code for contacts data
- New identicon plugin [1]
- Attach contact vCards to composed message
- Support WEBP images and MathML preview
- Preview, download and rename attachments when composing a message
- Message/rfc822 attachment preview
- Various Enigma (PGP) and Managesieve plugin improvements
- “Flattened” the Larry theme giving it a fresher look

Plus security and deployment improvements:

- Improve randomness of password salts and random hashes
- Fixed redundancy in sql caching system and compatibility with Galera Cluster

And finally some code-cleanup:

- Dropped support for legacy browsers (IE < 10; removed legacy_browser plugin)
- Require PHP >= 5.4
- Removed PHP mail() support
- Removed 3rd party javascript libraries from the repository
- Require jQuery 3.x which has breaking changes to older versions

IMPORTANT: The code-cleanup part brings major changes and possibly
incompatibilities to your existing Roundcube installations.
So please read the Changelog [2] carefully and thoroughly test your
upgrade scenario.

Please note that Roundcube 1.3

1. no longer runs on PHP 5.3
2. no longer supports IE < 10 and old versions of Firefox, Chrome and Safari
3. requires an SMTP server connection to send mails
4. uses jQuery 3.2 and will not work with current jQuery mobile plugin

With the release of Roundcube 1.3.0, the previous stable release
branches 1.2.x and 1.1.x will switch in to LTS low maintenance mode
which means they will only receive important security updates but no
longer any regular improvement updates.

See the complete Changelog in our wiki [2] and download the new
packages from https://roundcube.net/download.

Roundcube 1.3.0 is considered stable and we recommend to update all
productive installations of Roundcube. As usual, don’t forget to
backup and test with your custom plugins.
