Dear Roundcube users

We just published new releases which fix a recently reported
vulnerability that allows an attacker to overwrite configuration
settings using user preferences. This can result in random file
access, manipulated SQL queries and even code execution. The latter
one only affects versions 0.8.6 and older.

Beside the security fix, the 0.9.5 release also includes other minor
bug fixes and improvements. Most notably it brings the default spell
checker back after Google suspended their public spell checking

Please update your installations with the new versions or patch them
with the fixes listed below for the various older versions of
