Dear subscribers

We proudly announce the beta release of the next major version 1.4 of
Roundcube webmail.
With this milestone we introduce some new features:

* New responsive skin with mobile support
* Email Resent (Bounce) feature
* Improved Mailvelope integration
* Support for Redis cache
* Support for SMTPUTF8

See the full changelog in the release notes on the Github download page [1].

Thanks to the tremendous effort Alec has put into the new skin, we finally
managed solve the most urgent issue and make Roundcube accessible to the
growing number of mobile and tablet devices. We'd also like to thank Kolab
Systems for sponsoring some of Alec's working hours to the project.

Because the new responsive skin is not yet fully completed, it’s not
enabled by default. In order to make it the default for your users, change
your config.inc.php accordingly:

  $config['skin'] = 'elastic';

As an alternative, the plugin elastic4mobile [2] makes it the default for
mobile devices while keeping the configured default for desktop browsers.

The Elastic skin is built with LESS and of course the sources are included.
They allow a certain degree of customization by adjusting some color
variables [3]. All you need is to compile your very own customized skin
with lessc.

This is a beta release and we recommend to test it on a separate
environment. And don’t forget to backup your data before installing it.
Download it from https://roundcube.net/download/#beta

== New Logo and Website Design ==

As you may have noticed, the appearance of the Roundcube website has
changed a while ago and it's also responsive now ;-)
Many thanks to Phil Weir for re-coding the entire website and submitting a
proper pull request!

The new Elastic skin also brings a reshaped logo which has now been added
to our website.
The new logo was kindly designed and contributed by DRU Design [5]. Kudos!

Kind regards,
