WHMCS V4.3 Beta Testing

WHMCS V4.3 Beta Testing


A beta version of the next release of WHMCS has now been released to our beta tester users. We've been hard at work on V4.3 since early April adding some of the most popularly requested new features, various new modules, and tweaking/improving existing features & overall system stability.


Just some of the new features in this version include the new alternative Ajax order form (previewed recently on the forums), the ability to generate invoices for different cycles different lengths of time in advance, customisable admin email templates, the ability to specify Suspension Reasons on manual suspends, Client Area Search & Sorting functionality, and much, much more...


We already have all the beta testers we need and hopefully with the pre-beta testing we've done in house having gone well, we don't expect the beta period to last any more than a few weeks.


Keep checking back here and via twitter for updates: http://www.twitter.com/whmcs
