    Has x4 been abandoned for now? I am looking at cpanel themes and would like this one, but will have to purchase one elsewhere if this is no longer being developed.

    yes, development has halted on X4 while the team concentrates on another project. We have big things coming down the pipe in terms of the UI, but if you need a theme in the near-term, go ahead and purchase one you like.

    Any timeline on when development will start again?

    A new theme really is needed - x3 just seems outdated.

    you're absolutely right, a new theme is overdue. X3 is coming up on 7 years old at this point. It's definitely time for something simple, elegant and beautiful to take it's place.

    I'll have more information to share in the coming weeks, but know that we've got our sights on a new theme in the very near future.

    No, cPanel is still being fully developed and supported.

    Just the x4 theme is on hold, all other development is still going on. A better way to explain it is we realized x4 wasn't meeting goals we set internally so we wanted to stop and reevaluate where to go with it. We're still in that evaluation process now.
