Major skin and plugin upgrade

    We're happy to announce a release of a major upgrade to our Roundcube skins and plugins! We've been working on the improvements and fixes for this upgrade for a number of weeks.

    Calendar improvement Highlights

    The shared calendar plugin got a number of improvements. The events are now fully compatible with the Roundcube timezone settings; the published events work with the private and public status; the sharing functionality got new permissions, and much, much more!

    Background images on the login screen

    A new functionality was added to the background plugin: it can now display full-screen background images on the Roundcube login page! We have prepared a special gallery extension that includes 366 images. Using this extension, you can configure the xbackground plugin to display a new image every day! The gallery can be downloaded from the customer area of our website. If you'd like to see how the images on the login screen look in real life, visit our demo. Click the two invisible buttons in the top right and left corners to navigate.
