Dear subscribers

We proudly announce the beta release for the next major version 1.6 of
Roundcube webmail.
With this milestone we cleaned up the code and bring full support for PHP
8.1. The most noteworthy changes are:

   - PHP 8.1 support
   - Dropped support for PHP < 7.3
   - Support responses (snippets) in HTML format
   - Option to purge deleted mails older than 30, 60 or 90 days
   - Unified and simplified services connection config options
   - Removed the Classic and Larry skins from the release packages
   - SQLite: Use foreign keys, require SQLite >= 3.6.19

Adding support for PHP 8.1 again required some refactoring of the Roundcube
codebase and removing/replacing now deprecated PHP code. We also used this
cleaning efforts and simplified Roundcube's config options a bit.

*Breaking Changes*
Some config options have either been removed or renamed. Read the details
in the release announcement
<https://roundcube.net/news/2022/03/06/roundcube-1.6-beta-released> on our
website or in the release notes

If you used the Larry or the Classic skin in your deployment, you need to
install them manually as they are no longer part of the release packages.
They can easily be installed via Composer. See the full changelog in the
release notes on the Github download page

This is a beta release and we recommend to test it on a separate
environment. Download it from roundcube.net
<https://roundcube.net/download/>. Migrate existing configs with either the
installto.sh or the update.sh scripts. And don't forget to backup your data
before installing it.
