.. and some more nice coverage! Woo! :)
 
The crowdfunding campaigns shows that Open Source is not about free of cost software.

Does it work with the interface only and distant connection to a mail server/account ?

Jan says he's humbled and embarrassed by discussion of him in the new book by Red Hat's Jim Whitehurst ... I figure: let's make sure it spreads even further. When will we ever get to see him embarrassed again, right? I didn't even think it was possible ;)

I kid .. Jan is great and has certainly earned what was written about him. Nice to see recognition where due, and not just for the "hero coder" trope ....
 
This is embarrassing to me. I'm just proud that Red Hat accepts me the way I am. Humbled. #TheOpenOrg +Jim Whitehurst

Let's not stop until the color of +Jan Wildeboer's face matches that of his fedora ;)
You really deserve the praise, Jan!

Ah, when good people with great ideas fueled by their passion come together ... 
 
4 days left to be part of Roundcube Next.

Now just imagine that Mailpile and Roundcube Next were working together to ensure we build a stack that serves all use cases, and does so securely, with strong crypto options.

Actually... you don't need to imagine:

The other week, the awesome people at +Sandstorm.io and I spoke about Roundcube. It's one of the apps that their users deploy, so it only made sense. They were also crowdfunded so they understand what we're doing, as well. Kenton proposed they put out a message to their user base and let their users donate Sandstorm's funds to Roundcube if they so choose ... this kind of virtuous-cycle approach is inspiring to me, to be perfectly honest .. and just one day later they've already raised over $5,000 for Roundcube which, if you do the math, means we'll hit our core target of $80,000.

Thank you to everyone who has backed Roundcube Next in ways big and small. Every donation has been huge in terms of reaching our goal together. For every cPanel, tucows, bHosted, Contargo, TransIP and sandstorm.io, there has been (literally!) a hundred others who have thrown their support behind what we are doing.

Now we can begin to focus on our stretch goals ... let's see how far we get!

... and I am so looking forward to delivering the most amazing webmail platform ever as the next (free software!) version of Roundcube. Oh, and did I mention that we'll work to include sandstorm.io integration in the upstream mainline of Roundcube Next so sandstorm.io doesn't have to maintain their own patches?

Yes. Indeed. This will rock us all.

Roundcube Next's crowdfunding was a success .. now what? Here's what!
The crowdfunding campaign to provide funding and greater community engagement around the refactoring of Roundcube's core to give it a secure future has just wrapped up. We managed to raise $103,531 from 870 people. This obviously surpassed our goal...

.. which makes the sandstorm.io community the #1 contributor to the campaign! :) Looking forward to working with sandstorm.io as we move forward!
 
Sandstorm backers recontributed a total of $10,644 to Roundcube Next! I can't wait to see this new, modern, open source webmail app land on Sandstorm.

We'll be using our membership in the Roundcube advisory committee to help +Aaron Seigo and the rest of the Roundcube team understand how to make Roundcube an ideal experience for Sandstorm users. This will include everything from integrating with Sandstorm's authentication API to tweaking the UI to cleanly support single-mailbox instances to making sure users can select documents directly from their Sandstorm server when attaching files (because downloading and re-uploading would be silly). None of this will be hard, but being able to do it directly in the upstream codebase rather than maintain our own fork will be better for everyone. :)

Roundcube + Sandstorm + some polish = Epic Office365 alternative? :-)

Friend and free software promoter +Bryan Lunduke has  moved his email life to Kolab Now. Welcome, Bryan!
Here are some alternative email services to Gmail, and the one that I picked while trying to kick Google services out of my digital life.

Not the most amazingly brilliant of photos, as it was taken quickly with the crappy camera on my tablet before slotting it into a temporary mounting (to protect it) where it awaits proper framing ... but I'm quite pleased by this recent acquisition. It's from the late 15th century, and  the inhabited initial with the heron, frog, snail and rat is enjoyably random. It's 77.3cm by 55.4cm, so nice and large. Looks rather nice on a large wall, in fact.

Roundcube Next … we made it! But this is just the start, and the most important thing to me is that it is the start to building a much closer-knit community around the project and the product.
A couple days ago, the Roundcube Next crowdfunding campaign reached our initial funding goal. We even got a piece on Venture Beat, among other places. This was a fantastic result and a nice reward for quite a bit of effort...

+Aaron Seigo I mainly thought so due to the way things were "presented": nevertheless it does not matter now that the goal's been reached. ;)
