Dear subscribers

We just published the long awaited second release candidate for the next
major version 1.4 of Roundcube webmail. Many fixes, improvements and final
touches have gone into this since the first release candidate was
published. Check the Changelog [1] for a complete list of changes.

We waited for some promised contributions which unfortunately never arrived
but we now feel confident to call the new Elastic skin complete and ready
to be officially released.

As we’re moving towards the final release, we strongly encourage everybody
to customize the Elastic skin using the _styles.less and _variables.less
files to blend into your corporate design. You’ll find guidance for
customization in the README.md file inside the skin folder.

Rolling out a new and significantly different user interface should be
carefully planned and we recommend to prepare your users for the change.
Therefore the Elastic theme is not set to be the default theme. Adjust your
config in order to enable it by default or let your users switch themselves
in the user settings.

Please note that the Classic skin will no longer be maintained and
completely removed in future releases. Within the 1.4 release series, the
Classic skin remains part of the package but it will not receive new
features that were added to the Larry or Elastic themes.

This is still a preview 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 and keep on submitting bugs
and send us your feedback.


Alec & Thomas
