[Roundcube Announce] Roundcube Webmail 1.4 beta released
We proudly announce the beta release of the next major version 1.4 of Roundcube webmail.
With this milestone we introduce some new features:
* New responsive skin with mobile support * Email Resent (Bounce) feature * Improved Mailvelope integration * Support for Redis cache
* Support for SMTPUTF8
See the full changelog in the release notes on the Github download page .
Thanks to the tremendous effort Alec has put into the new skin, we finally managed solve the most urgent issue and make Roundcube accessible to the growing number of mobile and tablet devices. We'd also like to thank Kolab Systems for sponsoring some of Alec's working hours to the project.
Because the new responsive skin is not yet fully completed, it’s not enabled by default. In order to make it the default for your users, change your config.inc.php accordingly:
$config['skin'] = 'elastic';
As an alternative, the plugin elastic4mobile  makes it the default for mobile devices while keeping the configured default for desktop browsers.
The Elastic skin is built with LESS and of course the sources are included. They allow a certain degree of customization by adjusting some color variables . All you need is to compile your very own customized skin with lessc.
This is a beta release and we recommend to test it on a separate environment. And don’t forget to backup your data before installing it.
