    Roundcube 1.6 was released a while back, and I was wondering if it's compatible with a Debian11/Ispconfig 3 server, and if there's a tutorial for it somewhere, as I'm not conversant in it enough to rework the installation tutorial on its github page for my setup.

    Does the 1.6 Roundcube bring useful features?

    Can' really say, as i wasn't familiar with roundcube features enough to tell what's new and what's not. Other than a snazzy new interface that supports mobile better, and maybe some new drag and drop features. I was mostly just asking out of curiosity.

    I believe none of the Linux distributions supported by ISPConfig has Roundcube 1.6 yet. So whether it works with ISPConfig or not is maybe not so important, especially if does not come with any must have new features. I prefer a system that works to a system that may have nifty features but struggles to run reliably.
    However, you can try out what happens if you install Roundcube 1.6. I would use a test system for this, to avoid annoying users with a broken system. You can then write about your expeciences to enlighten other ISPConfig users.

    The roundcube package with version 1.6 is in testing stage on Debian, so it's not yet available there. From my experience the packages on Ubuntu and CentOS are usually a few versions behind the package on Debian, so I suppose it's not there yet either. But you can install from source of course.

    i've just installed roundcube 1.6 on an ubuntu 20.04 test server running ispconfig 3.2.8p1 and it seems to work fine, i see nothing there that i would see causing major problems on debian 11. albeit that i don't have the ispconfig roundcube plugins installed on this machine yet, so i can't check any of the settings -> account options.
    a few of the server settings are in different locations, and there's a new encryption option under 'preferences', which appears to require the mailvelope browser plugin to enable.
    there may be some breaking changes regarding the roundcube plugins, i don't have time to install and test those right now.

    the new version has more options under the settings -> preferences -> contacts. so if any part of the roundcube ispconfig plugins / integration was going to be an issue, i would expect it to be regarding contacts.

    Can confirm that roundcube 1.6 works without issue on debian 11 as well, with the same configuration steps from the perfect debian 10 server.

    I just loaded Roundcube in Ubuntu v22. The default version that comes in from apt is 1.5.0. The Apache directives are different than HowToForge documentation. I'll have to put this aside for a while and come back to it to provide more/better info in another thread if it's required.
