I welcomed a full on Feature Request system but it feels like it was launched without being finished.

You can only see the most popular feature request when first visiting so all the actual ones that people may want never get voted up. Surely it would make sense to list the latest ones.

For example the replacement of pkzip with pigz was the most popular feature request on the old forum. Now it's been left in the dirt. cPanel employees even said they would be demoing pigz soon but nothing ever came of it.

I know it's easy to criticise. I'm sure there is a lot of work at cpanel with maintaining the system, but it's really frustrating as a user when nothing seems to get done.

Thanks for your attention.

Thank you for your feedback on the feature request system. You are correct in that the system is not as full featured, at this time, as say the forum. We are continuing to work with the application developer(s) to improve it.

For the case of seeing new requests, you might bookmark this link: All Feature Requests | cPanel Feature Requests

For the case of "whither pigz," this feature will be available in cPanel & WHM 11.38.
