Roundcube Webmail 1.1-beta available

10 November 2014

We’re proud to announce that the beta release of the next major version 1.1 of Roundcube webmail is now available for download and testing. With this milestone we introduce a bunch of new features and some clean-up with the 3rd party libraries Roundcube uses:

  • Allow searching across multiple folders
  • Improved support for screen readers and assistive technology using WCAG 2.0 and WAI ARIA standards
  • Support images in HTML signatures (copy & paste)
  • Added namespace filter and folder searching in folder manager
  • New config option to disable UI elements/actions
  • Stronger password encryption using OpenSSL
  • Support for the IMAP SPECIAL-USE extension
  • Support for Oracle databases
  • Moved 3rd party libs to vendor directory, managed by Composer

And of course plenty of small improvements and bug fixes.

IMPORTANT: with this version, we dropped support for PHP < 5.3.7 and Internet Explorer < 9. IE7/IE8 support can be restored by enabling the legacy_browser plugin.
