Yesterday was the very first Contributors conference, I would like to thank everyone who attended, and invite everyone who couldn’t make it this time around to join next time.

We will hold a conference once a month from here on, 1-2 hours earlier than the one we held yesterday night.

In nearly 3 hours we gone through most aspects which I will summarize here.


Sub version update 1.1.1:

It will include:

  • Bandwidth fix
  • Several button fixes
  • User / Mail page layout fixes
  • Exchange calendar and contact permissions fix for mailboxes in a different language then English.


Major version release: 1.2.0:

Release Date: 31st January 2017

This will break the 3 month cycle due to holidays in December, and will give us additional time to properly test it for issues.

It will include:

  • Further design improvements (all forms to bootstrap based, etc).
  • Online automatic update, Installer update, and PowerShell update “unified” so there’s 1 way for all to update automatically.
  • Online Alert section that informs of:
    • SolidCP Update available
    • SolidCP Server not responding / wrong password / offline
    • Maybe some more items along the line.
  • Password honey pot field to prevent incoming brute force attacks
  • Lets Encrypt support
  • Overusage report modernized
  • Hyper-v VMM module
  • SpamExperts module
  • Sharepoint path based collections
  • DNS Made easy
  • Coldfusion DSN support
  • Filemanager improvements (allow apply to all or apply to single file)


Long term vision:

  • Add billing functionalities (back) into the panel (with api’s to integrate with existing billing systems)
  • Microsoft CSP qualifications:
    • Azure Active directory integration
    • Office 365 integration
    • Billing compliance
  • CMS Frontend
  • KVM / VMWare / XEN support


If your available please let me know if you want/can pick up some of the tasks for v1.2.0, we can use all the help we can get.
