Control panel will not be available for 2 hours, and individual services may not be available intermittently during this time. Below are the new features introduced with this upgrade: * apache2 (for new servers only) * pdo_mysql (Magento support) * Ruby on Rails (for new servers only) * Ability to switch exiting php4 domains on Linux hosting accounts to PHP5. * SiteStudio to update to version 1.8-15. * Human signup validation * Extended functionality of suspending and resuming accounts. http://www.psoft.net/HSdocumentation/reseller/suspending_resuming_accounts.html#extended_info * Web Access Control (for Linux hosting accounts) Provided possibility to create PayPal payment subscriptions from user control panel * WebShell 4.4.3 with Web 2.0 driven WebShell Protect Wizard. * New XP Reloaded design * FTP Over SSL/TLS for Linux hosting accounts on standard FTP ports ( port 20/21). * Mail SMS resource: forwarding email to SMS to any number of recipients, without excessive content, with filtering sender addresses and setting the size and number of messages. http://www.psoft.net/HSdocumentation/user/mail_sms.html * Setting max values for resources directly in Plan Wizard. Simplified plan wizards http://www.psoft.net/HSdocumentation/reseller/creating_and_editing_plans.html#simplified * ExtraPacks: packs of preset bundled resources to be offered to end users http://www.psoft.net/HSdocumentation/reseller/extra_packs.html * Hosting resource is made billable in Plan Wizard. Due to this, you can now set independent prices for domain and domain alias resources. * Now if a customer changes his payment type from Trial to Paid, he is charged for all resources he used during the trial period. Added an option in plan wizard to zero out the customer's balance before changing payment type from Trial to Paid. Points to note: 1. Custom php variable changes may not work for new hosting accounts. 2. Domain alias is "Hosting Domain Alias" resource in Web Services category. We have chosen to update on a Thursday as a new licensing scheme has been introduced in this release, and we would like get in touch with Parallels sales team (available only on weekdays) to resolve if any licensing problem happens. Please note, we already have new licensing tested, and this is just a precautionary measure.
