Web hosting control panel software provider cPanel announced on Monday the release of version 11.34 of cPanel and WHM software.
At its conference in Houston last week, cPanel went over many of the changes partners and end users can expect in the new version, including a new user interface for WHM.
In the keynote on Tuesday at cPanel Conference, cPanel CEO Nick Koston says 20 percent of the world’s websites run on cPanel-equipped servers and has the single largest footprint in the hosting business of any organization.
Ken Power, director of development at cPanel, provided more detail on the specific updates to cPanel and WHM at the cPanel Conference last week. He discussed the main new updates including a new login UI in cPanel 11.34, web disk, hooks management, remote API and the new WHM UI.
The new WHM UI improves navigation on a touch screen devicee by creating more space between menu items. The updates simplify the interface to improve both navigation and simplify web development.
Web disk in version 11.34 improves OS support, adds newer Linux distros including Ubuntu, OS X Mountain Lion and Windows Vista, 7, and 8. iOS and Android clients will be added soon.
Email archiving has been added in 11.34, and the service monitoring system has been overhauled to provide better notifications.
A new feature showcase page of WHM will alert users at login to any recent changes made by upgrading cPanel and WHM.
Upon updating or installing cPanel and WHM version 11.34 it is no longer possible to downgrade to a previous version.
