Still in a need of a graphic designer! I’m finishing work on core functionality for the new Roundcube theme. Almost all of the current functionality as of now is implemented in Elastic, including core plugins. In this post I’m providing information about some recent updates (with some sreenshots).
Yesterday I finished the quota widget. And now I can say that all functionality and widgets that we currently have in Roundcube are implemented. If I missed something this is a bug. This could be called a Beta, but there’s still a lot of work needed to polish the design and improve some graphics.
There are also some questions about user experience. Some first beta testers like it, but because designing mobile/touch interface is quite new for me, I’m sure there’s a lot of place for improvement. Fortunately we have a group of students that right now is doing some study on Elastic usability. I hope to get some extended feedback that will make the theme even better.
Very recently I also worked on many small elements in the mail preview, but really I need a designer. Here’s how the mail preview looks like right now. I also made use of Less in plugins simpler.
In parallel I’m now working on Kolab plugins. There’s a lot of them and some are really complex, e.g. Files or Calendar. It will cost a lot of time. Probably not much less than it took me to implement the core functionality. I really want these plugins to provide a much more unified interface than it is now, so there will be changes in the backend code that would have to still work with Larry.
For now, Activesync, Delegation, Multi-Factor Authentication and Addressbook functionality is ported.
