The release of our skins for Roundcube 9.x brought about the best and the latest that technology has to offer. One of the major improvements was including SVG images in all the mobile skins.

And what's so great about SVG? It solves icon display problems on the modern high-resolution smartphones. Because the smartphone screens nowadays use more and smaller pixels, they scale up whatever they display to make it readable to human eyes. When fonts are scaled it's not a problem because they are vector-based and when their size changes they don't lose quality. But images like JPEG or PNG are not vector-based and when they scale up, they become blurred.

The cutting-edge solution is to use vector-based SVG images that scale without losing quality. This is what we did with all our mobile skins.

The problem is that the older smartphones don't support the display of SVG images, so on some phones the Roundcube icons wouldn't display at all. We have now upgraded our mobile skins to include a fallback mechanism to PNG icons if the browser doesn't support SVG.

If you're using our mobile skins, we recommend that you re-download their latest versions from our customer area to make sure that the icons display properly for all your webmail users.

Our latest skins for Roundcube 0.9.2 have been released! The desktop skins are more complete, take full advantage of the new Roundcube functionality and work faster than before. The mobile skins have been re-designed from ground up to be compatible with both smartphones and tablets and to provide the best user experience yet!

The mobile skins will adjust their appearance depending on whether they're viewed on tablets or smartphones. They will display the folder sidebar, the expanded menus and the action toolbar on tablets, but use a different, space-conserving layout on smartphones.

You'll be able to "drag-down" to refresh the message list, enjoy easier navigation and larger buttons. All the mobile icons have been re-created using vector graphics, so they will appear crisp and clear on devices with high resolution screens.

The new options plugin that previously allowed the selection of different skins for the desktop and mobile devices now allows the selection for desktops, tablets and smartphones. You'll also enjoy the new skin selection interface that uses convenient popup windows and thumbnails.

If you're not using our Roundcube skins yet, we invite you to try them! Giving your users the ability to check their mail on tablets and smartphones is a must nowadays and a one-time fee of $49 (for one skin) or $99 (for all the skins) is a bargain!

If you haven't seen our skins in action yet, test them at our demo site.

Work is still in progress to make our skins compatible with Roundcube 9. This upgrade is taking a bit longer than usual since we're re-creating the skins from scratch to make them even more complete and user-friendly. And we're introducing something completely new: skins for tablets! This means you'll be able to choose in your options what skin will be used for your desktop, phone and devices.

We're hoping to release the new skins soon! Keep yourself updated!

As the Roundcube Team keeps upgrading the program and making it better, so do we regularly upgrade our skins to make them more complete and user friendly. This time it was the mobile skins that got a push forward in functionality: some of you reported that there was no way to expand or collapse the mail folders in the popup window on the mobile devices. We've added this functionality and you can now have full control of the mail directories in the mobile skins.

If you have an active license for our Roundcube skins, you can download the upgraded packages from our store. All skins currently available in the customer section of our store are fully compatible with Roundcube versions 0.8.0 to 0.8.5.

If you don't use our skins yet, we encourage you to try them! You can choose from an array of styles and colors to customize the looks of your Roundcube just to your liking! And you'll be able to conveniently access your webmail from your iPhone, Android or Window Phone! Visit our demo site to check out the latest and the best of what we have to offer!

We're two months into 2013 and if you've been sitting at the edge of your seat waiting for a new version of Roundcube, you can shift back now and get comfortable. Roundcube 0.8.5 has just been released and and we're glad to say that our skins are compatible - no skin upgrades needed this time around.

The Roundcube team did some bug fixes and improvements, as well as fixes for a recently reported XSS vulnerability. So, don't hesitate to upgrade.

21 Jan 2013

We're pleased to announce that we have re-written and improved the plugin responsible for selecting the skin depending on the device type being used to browse the webmail. The plugin is now more accurate in differentiating desktop devices from mobile devices, and the user can specify in the options what skin should be used on desktop and what on the mobile browsers.

This change makes it possible to use, say, the W21 skin or even the Larry skin on the desktop devices and one of our mobile skins, for example, Alpha Mobile on the mobile devices. For a hands-on demonstration of this new functionality, visit our demo site and navigate to Settings / User interface.

For some time now we've been working on creating a fully-featured corporate email hosting service based on Roundcube. We're glad to report that the work is going very well and we're nearing completion! This unique hosting service will be a specialized solution that will allow companies to outsource their entire email system to our servers. For example, if you own the domain "company.com", you will be able to host "mail.company.com" on our server and your entire mail system will be handled by us--you'll never have to worry about it again. And you'll always get the latest and the best in corporate webmail technology available anywhere!

Not only will the hosting include Roundcube with all of our desktop and mobile skins, but also a selection of the most useful third-party plugins, all integrated and working together like a Swiss watch! The admins will be able to add and remove email accounts, as well as control the essential preferences of their webmail hosting through a special plugin we have created called "Hosting Settings". Of course the direct access to the mail via POP3 and IMAP will also be available.

The Roundcube team released a new version of Roundcube this week (0.8.3). Most of the changes include program bug fixes and language pack updates and there are no changes in the skin templates. This means that you can safely use your skins from 0.8.2 in your 0.8.3 Roundcube installation.

When upgrading, please keep in mind that the skin files are located not only in the "skins" directory, but also in some directories under "plugins". If you don't copy the skin template files to their corresponding plugin directories, some of your plugins might not work. To be safe, re-download the skins from our website and copy them to your new Roundcube installation.

We're pleased to introduce to you the latest member of our Roundcube skin collection: the Corporate skin! Its design was first made popular as a theme in Ensignia Mail, our other email skin project.

Check out W21, our newest Roundcube theme release for both desktop and mobile browsers! Since the name is a bit of a mystery, let me explain. For many years we had a very popular Ensignia theme called Web 2.0. When upgrading the designs of our themes to make them look more modern, we renamed the theme to Web 2.1, or W21 in short.

W21 is one of the most smooth and modern themes in our collection. Its features are refined to perfection, which will be especially appealing to those with an artistic streak. Preview screenshots are available here.

You can add this sleek theme to your Roundcube installation for only $49! It’s a one time fee that includes one year of free upgrades and technical support. (Go to our store.)

Included with the theme is a plugin that automatically switches between the desktop and mobile versions of the browser depending on the device used. All in all, it’s a package well worth its price!

14 Aug 2012

We're pleased to announce that all of our Roundcube skins (both desktop and mobile) have been upgraded and are now fully compatible with Roundcube 0.8! They are also backward-compatible with Roundcube 0.6 and 0.7, so our current clients using the earlier versions of the program can upgrade safely.

Roundcube 0.8 introduces some new requirements for the skins and plugins. The plugins must contain template files specific to the active skin in order to function. This is a change from the previous versions of the program, where the plugins would work even if the template files didn't exist. We have taken special care to ensure that our skins provide the templates for all the plugins included with the Roundcube installation. Using our skins, all the default Roundcube plugins will work out of the box!

If you don't use our skins yet, we'd like to encourage you to try them! For only $49 you'll get a beautiful webmail with full mobile support (iPhone, Android and Windows Phone)! Our unique mobile technology is fully integrated with the skin, there's no need to install any additional software, just drop the skin to your Roundcube folder and enjoy it! The theme selector plugin will take care of detecting the device type and automatically activating the desktop or mobile version for you!

Check out the skin demo. Browse using a mobile device to test the mobile skins.

If you already use our skins, you may want to upgrade to the latest version if:

1. You're using Roundcube 0.8
2. You're using Alpha Mobile or LiteCube Mobile on Roundcube 0.6 or 0.7 - the skins now have more spacing between the links, which makes them easier to use.

If you're using Roundcube 0.6 or 0.7 with any of our other skins, you don't need to upgrade.

Happy Roundcubing!

We're happy to announce that one of our flagship themes so far available only to Ensignia users is now available for Roundcube! The theme bundle includes three items:

  • iClassic desktop theme (for desktop browsers)

  • Theme selector plugin (switches between the desktop and mobile theme depending on the device used)
