it is very satisfying to see Roundcube gaining more professional users

After several months of intensive development and testing, Kolab Systems is proud to announce the general availability of its new web client for the Kolab Groupware Solution on Univention Corporate Server (UCS) 2.4 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 and 6. Interested parties are invited to inquire about our winter sale, ending 1st February 2012.

The Kolab Groupware Solution has a groundbreaking design that allows for super-modular setups with individually scaling components that can be swapped out against each other as required. This is the basis not just for setups that allow flexible scaling of components for high-availability, load-balancing and site-reliability, it also allows individual components to be exchanged. In this case that meant providing a new web client based on the star of Open Source web mailers: Roundcube.

Roundcube has a modern, lean and extremely usable yet powerful interface that has made it the web mailer of choice for a great number of people and organizations around the world. Building upon the work of the community and together with the core Roundcube developers, Kolab Systems has now finished the integration of a new web front end for email, address book and calendar as well as configuration of mobile phone synchronization on top of the Kolab Groupware Server.

For us it is very satisfying to see Roundcube gaining more professional users,” says Thomas Brüderli, Roundcube Architect at Kolab Systems and Roundcube's project initiator. “Helping Roundcube adapt to this kind of setup was a fascinating endeavor and it has given the Roundcube community another major release with lots of improvements on performance and scalability as well as new features. The upstream policy of Kolab Systems has really helped us move the project forward independently of company interests.”

The Kolab Systems packaging and quality assurance for our customers has now made the Kolab Server available with the new web front end on the Univention Corporate Server (UCS) 2.4 as well as Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Versions 5 and 6. Other distributions may be available on request.
