Release 0.8 (stable) with new skin is out

We’re proud to finally release version 0.8 with the brand new skin, codename “Larry”, becoming the new default UI for Roundcube. After two preview releases and a lot of fine-tuning, the new design by has now grown up. But to all nostalgics out there: don’t worry, the old skin still remains part of the package and will be maintained for at least one more major release.
