V5 Status Update & Other News


It's very exciting times here at WHMCS. We've got a lot going on, and we're busy tweaking and finalising Version 5, updating and adding to our documentation for the new release, and getting everything ready for what is set to be our biggest and best new launch to date.


The beta testing has been going very well, with lots of great ideas and comments coming in from our testing group. And we're still taking on board and acting on suggestions even now in the final stages of preparations.


Thanks also for all the positive feedback we've had relating to the previews & details revealed in recent blog posts. It's really good to know that you're liking what you've seen so far, and so later in this post we've got a bit more to show you...



New Logo


First of all I would like to introduce our new logo. This has been designed to reflect a fresher and more up to date WHMCS, to complement our brand new Version 5.0 release later this month.





New Website


In conjunction with the new logo, we're refreshing our own website. It's been a couple of years since our last major redesign, and so to complete the rebranding process, and to better promote the benefits WHMCS can bring to users, we've reworked the entire site to give it an updated and more modern look. The new site will be going live within the next week.



Goodbye Free Trial... Hello Money Back Guarantee


Within the next week we will also be discontinuing the free trial offer. Instead, this is being replaced with a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee on all new license purchases, meaning new clients can still try our software risk free, with the benefit of having access to support, and in fact now for even longer, since you will have up to 30 days to decide if WHMCS is right for you.



V5 Admin Area Preview


In response to many enquiries we've received from users who are keen to see more of what's coming up in our new Version 5 release, here's a short video preview of some of the key admin side functionality we've been working on. This video demonstrates the following: Our Refreshed Admin Look, The Admin Homepage Widgets, New Multi-level Dropdown Menus, Ticket Attachment Thumbnails, Context Sensitive Help Shortcuts, Mass Product/Service Update Additions, Expanded PayPal Transaction Lookup, Product Bundles, Improved Admin Ticket Opening, The Automated Email Marketer & a Staff Noticeboard Addon.




Further V5 Client Area Previews


Recently we released some previews of the new client area styling that we'll be shipping as standard with WHMCS Version 5.0. 2 Weeks on and we have a few more previews to show you! The 6 screenshots below showcase a selection of a few more pages of the client area, including a new combined Server Status & Network Issues page named "Network Status", and demonstrate the flexibility of the new design with the default standalone V5 portal look having been applied through pure CSS. This new design will also feature a CSS Generator Wizard available through our website, allowing you to choose between the full width (shown previously), fixed width, or portal styles, and customise colors and styling without even needing to touch any code.















Thanks for reading, and our next blog post will be the launch of Version 5.0 - so not long to wait now :)
