Release: Froxlor 0.9


Recommended Posts

We think a good maintained control panel is essential for reliable webhosters. You might be one of them so you know best.


It all started up with the well known system control panel "SysCP". Many of us were working on SysCP for a long and nice time

until the team began to be at variance with the head of SysCP and his ideas about the future of SysCP.


EleRas decided to quit working on SysCP in march 2009, soon followed by d00p, atari and radiation.

We decided it was time to build a new panel with a better community-aspect and a good release-cycle.


Due to time-issues Froxlor went to sleep until January 19th, 2010.

Soon the team was back together and within two days the decision to fork SysCP was made

(we couldn't stand to let the users use this buggy tool any longer);

built up the infrastructure and fixed an enourmous amount of bugs mentioned in the SysCP bugtracker.


After this release, we will re-work the source, give it a new core and develop a more flexible

architecture which will make it easier to maintain and stabilize future releases.


Behind the scenes a more democratic approach will be used.

There is not a single person who decides where to go and what to do - it's the team.

At least three team-members are needed to approve (bigger) decisions.


Without any more words, we now proudly present: Froxlor 0.9


Froxlor-0.9 is fully compatible with SysCP. Upgrading possible with only one click ;-)


The following SysCP- bugs have been fixed in Froxlor 0.9

Beside these bugs, we decided to drop the billing-module completely in Froxlor due to many bugs and unmaintainable code.

If you are one of the very few users of that module - sorry :(


This first release should be seen as an intermediate step between SysCP and the upcoming Froxlor 1.0 release.

SysCP's design was kept in 0.9 for an easier changeover.
