1. Login history, allow the customer to view which ip's have logged into the control panel in the past 7/30 days (number set in WHM) days.

2. Theme selector, allow the customer to change themes between the available themes.

3. Remove the "Connection Strings" from the mysql database page.

4. On the add/remove email page, the email address is listed twice which is basically taking up space and not needed. There should be only Email Address list, not the login because they are both the same.

That's all I can think of for now :)

Yes but it would be nice to have that with default cpanel without rvskin or cpanel xp. It should be an option with all themes.

My wish list:

1. Roundcube

2. Ruby on Rails

3. Ability to email ALL email accounts on the server. For example, we are contemplating a move to maildir format and want to be sure all users are aware of the changes. Im concerned that the webmaster contact for each account will be too lazy to pass on the information to each of their email users (such as for large nonprofits and corps we host). Would be great if there was a way to email all email users.

4. A tool like Mailwatch (without needing Mailscanner) where we can watch in real time email being delivered along with the to/from and subject of the email.

5. ASSP.

A few of these are implemented and will be in cPanel 11 (I think), for example, using 11.1-E379, there is a new file manager that kicks the old one off the planet.

Roundcube won't be considered until they get their resource usage under control. We've tried it several times internally with our office staff and it just is too expensive resource-wise.

There is an install ruby script in /scripts Has been there for a few months I've used it to install Ruby, but haven't tested the resulting config.

The MySQL (and PostgreSQL) page are cleaned up in 11.

The other things here, no comment at this time.

http://bugzilla.cpanel.net/

The actual bugzilla ID for roundcube is here:
http://bugzilla.cpanel.net/show_bug.cgi?id=3357

Looke like cP11 will now detect it if it is installed. Integration sounds like it is up to you.

It sure has been in Beta for a long time. It'd be nice if cP could figure out the resource usage deal and just take the existing source and fork it to something fully in house.

Call it cP Webamil or something like that. Anything to get rid of that retched Horde.

Squirrelmail is OK for PDA's but archaic by today's standards for what clients expect to see on their new shiney Vista systems and $199 20-inch LCD flatscreens.

Squirrelmail and Horde both remind me of something I'd see when I had Windows 98 / RHEL 7.3 and a 15 inch CRT. :)

I bet they are going to look really tacky with the new X3 interface! hehe. Well they way things are moving lately I am sure it won't be long before we have a webmail client that is not so dated and un-user friendly as Horde.

X3 and Horde/SquirrelMail go hand in hand .. all of them look like they were designed in the last decade/century/millenium

What makes you dislike the X3 theme and why do you think it is dated?

so, where do customers find out about these new things..
I dont recall seeing an announcement about the ruby on rails scripts, etc..
you guys do yourselves a disservice by not communicating updates/features very well to customers.

As for roundcube.. I dont know why it's been so long since they've done an update, but I've been running it on my servers since the latest beta came out in december.
I've no idea how many of my clients use it, but I've not really noticed any issues on the server when it's in use.

We noticed significant issues w/ speed on a mail server with less than 100 users. We continue to keep an eye on it and will add if it is up to par. Of note, if Roundcube is installed, it will be detected and will show up for clients in cPanel 11.

changelog.cpanel.net:
I guess we disagree somewhat on what counts as communication...
changelog.cpanel.net appears not to have the ability to do any kind of sorting by version.. IE. "I'd like to select MY version, and then see a list of features"
that'd be one possibility.

as it is, I'd either have to check the changelog every day, and then hope that an obscure note about adding something in scripts meant that a particularly functionality was supported.

I suppose, given WHM is also part of the package, if something were majorish, it would have an associated button or option in the whm config?

I'm not trying to be difficult, but I think new customers certainly wouldn't sift through 2 years of changelogs to see if somethings supported... it also doesn't really tell people how to use it.

I realize documentation is a daunting task, but there's got to be a better way :(

hahahaha, that's when the changelog used to be updated. Judging by the changelog, the latest build available is 11.1 (build 9566) - EDGE Tree which we know is false. How are we to know what has changed between versions is the changelog is ultra-stale?

While the changelogs may be a little terse right now I know the cP devs have their hands full introducing the new front-end, and other fun things like the new easy apache among other things.

I would venture to speculate that they are burried right now in getting things up to snuff and released as soon as possible and would prefer to spend time getting the code right than writing a paragraph about every single change.

Maybe after the dust settles we will get some more descriptive changelogs but for now I am happy to see things like a new interface and apache2 support.
