Runbox retire Roundcube webmail

https://help.runbox.com/roundcube/#N...t_of_Roundcube

Quote:
Runbox is now focusing on the development of Runbox 7, the fastest webmail app on the planet. Runbox 7 is built for the future, and will provide everything Roundcube does just better. Try it out now at https://runbox.com/app!

For this reason, and because the Roundcube userbase is small compared to the effort required to maintain it, we will be retiring Roundcube on December 31, 2019.
I don't know for what future is Runbox 7 build. It is one of the most ugly and counter-intuitive webmail I ever tested. Even the old Runbox webmail is better than Runbox 7.

And they plan to retire Rouncube, the only usable webmail they have. And I wonder what great effort is required to keep Roundcube online, you just install it and that's it! Oh, yeah, and update it from time to time, soooo hard.

Totally agree!

Don't say Runbox 7 is in beta. It's just in alpha stage.
They use us users to develop Runbox 7. I don't feel like it anymore. And it all takes way too long. IMHO, they are on the wrong track.

We are quite happy with where Runbox 7 is heading, and so is the majority of our beta tester community (which you can easily find via the Runbox website).

The future belongs to webmail services that are exceptionally fast and packed with functionality, and that's where Runbox intends to be.
