Dear subscribers

We proudly announce the final release of the next major version 1.5 of
Roundcube webmail. With this milestone we introduce new features and full
PHP 8.0 support. The most noteworthy additions are:

   - Dark mode for Elastic skin
   - OAuth2/XOauth support (with plugin hooks)
   - Collected recipients and trusted senders
   - Moving recipients between inputs with drag & drop
   - Full unicode support with MySQL database
   - Support of IMAP LITERAL- extension RFC 7888
   - Support of RFC 2231 <https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/rfc2231>
   encoded names
   - Cache refactoring

See the full changelog in the release notes
<https://github.com/roundcube/roundcubemail/releases/tag/1.5.0> on the
Github download page.

We also disabled the spell checking feature using spell.roundcube.net by
default because some privacy concerns were raised. It now needs to be
enabled explicitly by setting the enable_spellcheck config option to true.

In case you’re running Roundcube directly from source or if you’re not
using the complete package, you need to install 3rd party PHP and
JavaScript modules manually. See this post for more details

This release is considered stable and we encourage you to update your
productive installations after carefully testing the upgrade scenario.
Download it from roundcube.net <https://roundcube.net/download>.

With the release of Roundcube 1.5.0, the previous stable release branches
1.4.x and 1.3.x will change into LTS low maintenance mode which means they
will only receive important security updates but no longer any regular
improvement updates. The 1.2.x series is no longer supported and maintained.

Kind regards

Alec & Thomas
