    I keep hearing people mention the next big release of cPanel, version 11. Quite often linked with support for Apache 2. Where are people finding this information? Is there an official location about upcoming features for this that I can read? Better yet does cPanel maintain a roadmap for their software?

    I would presume they are receiving this information by running cPanel 11.

    To run cPanel 11, you would need to switch over to EDGE builds (instead of CURRENT, STABLE or RELEASE) in Update Config in the WHM interface. However, it is highly unrecommended to run an EDGE build of cPanel/WHM on a production server as many features may have minimal if any testing.

    Thanks David,

    Any answers to my other questions? Like a roadmap or an official list of planned features?

    it has been talked about a lot on here and on bugzilla

    there is a bugzilla thread about apache 2 support

    there is a preview of the new x3 theme in the demo section here

    they have been tight liped about any sort of release date or timeline or roadmap, so I would say it'll be out when it's ready

    since it's in edge now, it couldn't be that far away

    Yes they have been quite tight lipped. I've seen what you're talking about, but as a business owner (as I'm sure you are too) it's nice to be able to make actual plans. cPanel for whatever reason doesn't seem to ever release any upcoming information, unless you want to run an Edge build and put your customers through the missery of bug testing.

    I don't particularly mind release date slips, though others I'm sure would complain, what I care about is what features in the future cPanel will provide me. Without having to spend all my time searching through bugzilla and glossing over the forums looking for tidbits.

    That's not unique to cpanel :D

    The releases numbers and changelog (for what it's worth) here will give you some insight if you follow it a bit. http://layer2.cpanel.net

    Yes it's not unique to cPanel, I have no idea about other hosting control panel software, just experience in other enterprise, business software. Where it is somewhat common to give a clue to your customers what you're planning.

    The link to layer2 is a good link, better than nothing I suppose. I guess the changlog for 11.1 is a product spec.

    usually when software dates are set, they are missed, so it messes up any plans

    i'd prefer they just get it all working and relesae it when it's ready, then make promises and rush it out

    NO dates discussed, but here are some of the features currently in EDGE:

    The WHM Side:

    Many, many fixes/changes to the interface. Cleaned up a lot of typos, changed some wording for added clarity.

    EasyApache 2 - not only will it allow you to compile Apache 1, 2.0 and 2.2, but it easily allwos one to integrate third party modules into the build process (hint: an added module shows up in the interface for your selection).


    The cPanel side:

    The X3 Theme. Most user visible changes are in this theme.

    A code editor, for editing PHP scripts and the like

    It's very AJAXy (don't worry, we're also testing the non-AJAX version)

    A First Time user "wizard"


    There are a lot more "under the hood' things we've done - the above are just some highlights from memory.

    Is it means, that cpanel devs decide to complete re-write panel or just upgrade/improve?

    Thanks for the feedback. Dates don't concern me as much as some sort of roadmap. So I know more what is in store. I fully understand that planned things can get delayed or cut, but having SOME sort of clue is nice. Especially when it concerns my business.

    Yeah, it would be great if there is some sort of a roadmap...

    Just found this on the net :
    http://faq.rahul.net/cgi-bin/fom.cgi?_recurse=1&file=58#file_71

    Is there any substances to this quote, or should I start to worry?

    This has no relevance to this thread. Official support for RedHat 7.2 was dropped some time ago. Likewise RedHat's support for 7.2

    They are correct in that we no longer support Fedora-Legacy ("Red Hat Linux") version 7.2. We continue to support versions 7.3 and 9 of Fedora-Legacy. Note that Fedora-Legacy 7.2 is an incredibly old Operating System (by computing standards, release date was October 2001 according to FedoraProject.org) and anyone still running it should consider upgrading to a newer version of RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) or CentOS.

    If this hosting provider does not wish to continue making cPanel/WHM available to its customers then I would recommend customers on that provider consider relocating to one of the very many providers that do support cPanel/WHM.

    However, it's not like we're stopping updates all-together or anything so no need to worry about that.

    Translation:

    We don't know how to handle this situation, so rather than finding someone to handle it for us, or learning how to do it ourselves, we'll simply blame others but continue to take your money while providing lackluster service on outdated software (and probably hardware).

    It amazes me that there are people out there acting as hosts with no clue whatsoever.

    At any rate, I'm looking forward to your 'ajaxy' interface :)

    redhat 7.2 holy .. geez . i wonder how did they not get hacked till now !

    anyway . regarding the new ajaxy interface, you can try the edge version, i am running it for 4 months already, and except minor fixes, haven't had any issues to deliver great stable services to my customers, which are already inlove with the new x3 theme.

    Just checking the changelogs now, all looks very good for cpanel 11 but one thing (or 3) got me curious....

    Improved the Al*anza move script.
    Improved the Ple*k move script.
    Improved the En*im move script.

    Why the *?

    My first instincts were so search engines and the likes dont pick them up but id like to think im wrong.......

    I think the reason for the * is so that the search engines don't pick it up. Also, it could be because using other competitors names wouldn't be good for cPanel.





    I think...
