Atomia Cloud Hosting Platform

15.3 Stable Release (March 2015)

9 views 0

Overview

The 15.3 release was released 2015-03-16. The largest changes and focus areas were:

  • Improved Openstack integration We improved both the package-based billing and usage-based billing scenarios for our Openstack integration. The usage-based invoice handler is now integrated with the generic workflow making it easier to configure. We now support charging for volumes, bandwidth and snapshots in addition to instance hours. The VPS manager has received a large number of new features and improvements.
  • Beta version of new order page We have created a completely new order page using a new default theme. This new order page is much easier to customize, extend, and maintain than our previous order page. It is available for testing right away, but we will keep supporting the current order page for a number of releases. The new order page can be found at GitHub.
  • New System tab in the Admin Panel There is now a new tab in the Admin Panel called “System” that contains functionality for making the life of an administrator easier. The System tab lets you see what is currently running, what has run recently, and gives easy access to run logs for scheduled tasks. It also contains performance trends and other statistics plus a scripting facility.
  • Configure more via the Admin Panel We added a new feature to manage shops directly in the Admin Panel. With this functionality you can for example start selling a new TLD without having to change your configuration. Instead you just add it to the shops where you want to sell it, right inside the Admin Panel. We also added a page for creating and configuring resellers.
  • Features visible to end users Many of the existing features in the Hosting Control Panel have been improved to make for a better user experience. The support for prepaid credits has received some fixes and is working better than ever. In the new release you are also able to start offering PostgreSQL hosting.
  • General quality improvements We continued to focus a large percentage of our resources on fixing any known problems and other general quality and performance improvements. The new release thus contains a large number of bug fixes.
