Roundcube 1.4 Release Candidate 2

Published: 16 September 2019

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 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 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.
