Hello!

The team has been busy as always, and we're pleased to announce the release candidate for 1.62.5:
Version: 1.62.5 RC1

This is mainly a minor bugfix release with all changes listed here:

The most notable feature would be the use of new release channels, which can be set in the Admin Licensing/Updates page:

The default for everyone is "current" which matches the version listed on our website.
We've added "stable" will will trail behind for an amount of time which we deem sufficient to confirm the release has gone smoothly (guessing a few weeks).

There's also an "alpha" channel (pre-release in it's previous definition for quick fixes and bleeding edge new features), and "beta" channel, referring to referring to locked release candidates (aka: this release). If anyone had a hard-coded pre-release download script path (alpha), note it's different than before (beta takes that path so it will be updated far less often).

To try out these binaries, please grab them from the pre-release area (beta channel):

And from there, you can change your channel to beta in:
Admin Level » Licenses/Updates
which will always let you know when there's a new version in that channel (hooray for automation).
The SHA commit hashes are used to control "latest or not" state for alpha/beta.
The "stable" branch is version number specific.

Anyone on alpha/beta channels would be recommended to keep things to the latest to ensure any new bugs are fixed more quickly (up to you)

Note: the getDA.sh alpha only works for alpha once you get this new beta pack.

Should you run into any issues, please let us know in the forum below, to duplicates in the ticket system.

Thanks!
John

Need refund. i do not wish to continue with DirectAdmin. It has many issues. Httpd: stops running suddenly multiple times and will not resolve. And no technical support is there.

If i need tech support then the package u have is 15$ per month. Then it would be preferable to go this Cpanel.

Waiting for a urgent response

Regards
Amit

Perhaps another nice feature for the file manager:
Ability to hide hidden files/directories (.files)

Seems a bit odd feature imho.
How would you be able to unhide them? It's normally up to the customer to hide or unhide files placing the dot.
If the user can't see it via file manager because the hidden files or directory's are hidden... and they don't have SSH access they can't unhide, correct?

Anyway, feature requests and suggestions should be done in the feature forum.

Well, i meant to not display them in the file manager on DA, a simple toggle in the file manager to either show them, or not. Obviously you want the user to see them when they need to, but in my home dir there are a lot of .files and .dirs, so being able to hide them in the gui file manager would be welcome.

Anyways, i'll add to the feedback forum
