Release Notes

The biggest changes by far are to the domain management features. ID Protection can now be offered with domains as an addon during the order process. The Enom, DirectI & Stargate modules support the automatic enabling of ID protect on domain registrations made by WHMCS when the addon is ordered. Addons can also be displayed in the order process for DNS Management & Email Forwarding. These features can currently only be managed in an automated way from the client area with the Enom module.

There have also been some big changes to the PayPal setup. The previously seperate PayPal Subscriptions & Invoices modules have been combined in V3.4 to offer invoicing for subscription payments. This not only makes tracking and maangement easier, but it also means credit can be used with them. Subscriptions will be created with the invoice total as the first payment amount and the recurring value of the product as the recurring amount. Addons and domains will then need paying with one time payments.

Articles will be added to the online manual over the next couple of days explaining how to use the new features so please refrain from submitting tickets asking how to do things until these have been added. I'll update this post with links to the relevant articles as soon as they're available.



Thank You.
Regards,

Matt
