ownCloud Mail v0.3 released

1 min read

We’re proud to announce the arrival of the next version of ownCloud Mail. It has already been uploaded to the ownCloud app store and can also be downloaded from Github.

We have merged more than 170 pull requests since version 0.2.1 - mostly JavaScript Refactoring and bugfixes.

Although the 0.3 release was planned as refactoring only, we have included some new features:

  • Image blocking
  • Inline images are directly shown
  • Speed up unified inbox
  • Better overall frontend performance

This release already supports ownCloud 9.0 which will be released next month. If you want to know what’s coming up in version 0.4 & 0.5 you'll find more information in this blog post on owncloud.org.

Mail App table on the conf

During the ownCloud Conf which took place last week in Berlin we released version 0.2 of the ownCloud Mail to apps.owncloud.com.

The new features are:

  • Unified inbox
  • Client-side caching for better performance
  • Ability to forward emails
  • Inline reply
  • Attachments on replies
  • Mobile support

The next weeks we will work on version 0.3 which will be about refactoring, cleanup, focusing on fixing bugs and getting the release more stable.

During the ownCloud conf we made HUGE improvements:

  • We cleaned up all JS files and harmonized the Code Style with JSCS
  • We introduced RequireJS and Bower
  • Most of the code has been refactored to a Backbone Marionette App
  • Images blocked by default, can be loaded on request
  • We moved to Revealing JS Modules
  • We added Jasmin tests with the Karma runner. Basic tests for views and modules are already there
  • We moved our PHP templates to JS handlebar templates (including translations)
  • All tests and style / syntax checks are executed by Travis
