Hi,

The Softaculous Team has released Softaculous 3.5
This version of Softaculous adds some cool new features and fixes some bugs. This version adds the capability to install PERL scripts by the click of a button.

A complete list of changes:

1) We have added PERL scripts for the endusers. A user can now install PERL scripts without going through complex installation procedures.

2) Added the ACL for control panel plans. Now you can define Softaculous Plans / ACL and link them to the control panel plan. All users who have that particular control panel plan will automatically get only the scripts listed in the Softaculous Plan.

3) We have added a new SUPER COOL feature - A Softaculous Category in the cPanel User Interface showing the TOP 14 scripts that the user can access directly from cPanel. You can also rename the Category to anything you like to suite the name of your Hosting Company. To disable this is also possible. Just go to the Softaculous Admin Panel and leave the field "Show Top Scripts" empty and save.

NOTE : A bug in cPanels rebuild_sprites has been acknowledged by the cPanel Team. Due to this bug, the icons will not appear in Softaculous. Here is the detailed information on the BUG

4) We have added a new Softaculous favicon. There are new Favicons for Webuzo and AMPPS as well.

5) Added API to get the list of Installed Scripts of a user.

6) Added API to uninstall an installation of a user.

7) Added API to get the Demos and Screenshots of a script.

8) Categorized the scripts in the Add and Edit ACL / Plan pages for easy selection of scripts.

9) Added option to disable PERL scripts if a host doesnt want to offer it.

10) Added option to add a Remote MySQL Host in Direct Admin.

11) Improved API to import scripts with Data Directory.

12) Improvements for the next version of AMPPS and Webuzo which will be launched soon after. AMPPS is a WAMP and MAMP stack for Desktops and servers while Webuzo is Standalone Softaculous for VPS and Clouds.

13) Bug Fix : MySQL DB Name suggestion has been improved for long usernames.

14) Bug Fix : While backing up an installation if a file was not readable, the backup used to fail. More error reporting has been added and the backup procedure has been improved.

15) Bug Fix : In Plesk 10+ subscription domains was not supported by Softaculous. This is now supported.

16) Bug Fix : Added UTF-8 email support in Softaculous.

17) Bug Fix : Added seperate php.ini in Direct Admin for Softaculous to avoid bugs related to suhosin enabled servers.

18) Added feature to install Popular scripts like WordPress, PrestaShop, MyBB, phpBB, DokuWiki, Piwik and few more in Multiple Languages.

We hope you enjoy this version of Softaculous and our new products Webuzo (http://www.webuzo.com) and AMPPS (http://www.ampps.com). AMPPS for MAC will also be soon released. We have made a small 2 minute video of Webuzo Cloud :

Webuzo Cloud is in the Release Candidate stage.

NOTE: 3.6 was released hours after version 3.5 and it removes the Softaculous Group in the cPanel User Interface (which was enabled by default in version 3.5). If the admin wants to show the top scripts group in the cPanel User Interface, the admin will have to manually enable the same.

Regards,
The Softaculous Team

Hi,

At the moment this is not possible.
But we will add this in upcoming version.
The formula for the top 14 is taken as per the ratings an reviews users give us.

Alons

Thank you, Alons. The problem is that there are some scripts (like Magento) which we do not want clients to install on our shared hosting servers, but it is listed in the top 14.

Otherwise, a very nice upgrade to an awesome script. Well done!

Enkompass is still being developed.
The problem with Enkompass is that they still havent implemented an API.
We have been exchanging emails with the cPanel team and they said that the new API will soon be available.
We are still working at the same time to get the information in any other format or an alternative API / method we can use.

Alons

Ive already had a couple of clients comment on how unprofessional it looks without the images.

so i will give you 1 HOUR to either provide a correction for this or a way to revert back to 3.4.

if non of these are done i will cancell ALL my licences and list on all forums that you release versions that are not finished.

because i run a professional business and you released a version that is not finished.

@easyhost you're being unfair. I have softaculous installed on many servers, and they are all displaying the icons correctly. So the problem is specific to your servers, and not a general problem.

If you're willing to get rid of the best auto-installer available for a small glitch like this, which I am sure will be fixed (have you taken the time to submit a support ticket?) then I think you're just being silly.
