Version 0.6-beta released

We're proud to announce the next major release of the Roundcube webmail package: 0.6 is out now as beta. And it's packed with new features, some of them have been awaited for long time.

So what's new?

* A full-featured address book with rich contact information
The address book UI was finally extended to store rich contact data including photos. We worked hard to create a flexible and intuitive UI to enter and manage the contact data. Along with that, import and export of vcards was improved to support all the new fields. If you have LDAP directories configured as address sources, you might review the configuration and map the new contact fields to the according LDAP attributes using the 'fieldmap' property.... read more

Bugfix release 0.4.2 out now

As you might have heard, also the developers of Roundcube are just human beings and thus not always creating perfect and 100% bug free work. The last 0.4.1 release fixed many bugs but also introduced a quite annoying new one. That's why the next release follows just one week later. It fixes a few important bugs, especially the "Server Error" message when expanding/collapsing folders and it also updates some previously incomplete localization files.... read more

Version 0.4 (stable) released

After the big new features in 0.4-beta this release now completes the unfinished work and fixes bugs related to the new threaded message listing and address groups features. We also cleaned up the user interface and tried to make all UI elements more consistent.

With this release the skins have been excluded from the GPL license terms (see README file). This allows you to choose whatever license you want for your custom skins and even opens the door for creating commercial skins.... read more

New version 0.4-beta released

A new major release is now available for deep testing. With this version we fixed over 50 bugs and added new features like threaded message listing and contact groups support as well as many little improvements that make e-mail reading with Roundcube an even better experience.

While it's still called a beta release we consider it to be stable enough for
productive environments. However the new features may have some minor issues which we are happy to hear about.... read more

New nightly build released for testing

For the upcoming version 0.4 of Roundcube Webmail we have done some refactoring of the backend code which improves both performance and reliability of the application.

This is where we need your help! Please download the latest nightly build (r3325) from http://nightly.roundcube.net/ and install it in parallel to your running systems. Test it with your configuration and all the different IMAP servers. As usual you are kindly requested to report problems to our bug tracking system at http://trac.roundcube.net/... read more

Release Candidate for 0.3

After getting plenty of feedback for the plugin API which was published in version 0.3-beta we now released an almost-ready version of RoundCube. The reason why this not yet a stable release are some pervasive changes on the IMAP backend in order to improve performance. We'd like our dear users to extensively test this release candidate and submit errors to our bug tracker. The 0.3-stable release will follow soon...

Version 0.2-stable released

The second stable version of the RoundCube Webmail package completes unfinished work from the 0.2-beta release and comes up with about 80 bugfixes as well as some performance improvements.

Security update for 0.2-beta

There were two security issues reported which are now fixed. The first was as possible code injection using the html2text conversion script. The other exploit used the unchecked size parameters of the quota image to let PHP create huge images eating up all the server memory.

The two vulnerable scripts were updated in the current 0.2-beta package and for existing RoundCube installations we recommend to download http://downloads.sourceforge.net/roundcubemail/roundcubemail-0.2-beta-patch.tar.gz and to replace all the files with the new versions found in the archive.

Posted by Thomas Bruederli 2008-12-16

- complete TinyMCE integration
- message flagging
- default imap folders configurable for each user/account
- import/export of address book contacts
- support for pspell and syslog.

It's considered as stable and we recommend to update existing installations of RoundCube. Please read the UPGRADING instructions for details. An update script will (hopefully) be included with the next version.
