Control Panel Upgrade!
Posted by - NA - on 20 January 2009 12:48 PM
This upgrade will pave the way for several long awaited upgrades such as ColdFusion 8, Windows 2008 and MS SQL Server 2008. Additionally, the new control panel system will add several new features including multiple account logins, login roles, database backups, increased file management and greater control for our Tier 1 Customer Service team.

Previous attempts to upgrade the control panel system have caused issues for a select few customers who have non-standard web or email hosting configurations (e.g. off-network email/website hosting). We are taking many pre-cautions for these customers to avoid complications. No action is needed on your part. If you are affected, please send an email to and we will address the problem as quickly as possible.

We are urging customers to make any necessary changes to your systems before the control panel is taken down for the upgrade. This includes adding websites, email accounts or FTP Accounts. Making changes to these systems will not be possible during the upgrade window.

We appreciate your patience and look forward to serving you in 2009.

.NET Framework 3.5 builds incrementally on the new features added in .NET Framework 3.0. For example, feature sets in Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Windows CardSpace. In addition, .NET Framework 3.5 contains a number of new features in several technology areas which have been added as new assemblies to avoid breaking changes. They include the following:

- Deep integration of Language Integrated Query (LINQ) and data awareness. This new feature will let you write code written in LINQ-enabled languages to filter, enumerate, and create projections of several types of SQL data, collections, XML, and DataSets by using the same syntax.

- ASP.NET AJAX lets you create more efficient, more interactive, and highly-personalized Web experiences that work across all the most popular browsers.

- New Web protocol support for building WCF services including AJAX, JSON, REST, POX, RSS, ATOM, and several new WS-* standards.

- Full tooling support in Visual Studio 2008 for WF, WCF, and WPF, including the new workflow-enabled services technology.

- New classes in .NET Framework 3.5 base class library (BCL) that address many common customer requests.

Additionally we have installed the necessary MIME types for Microsoft Silverlight. Microsoft® Silverlight™ is a cross-browser, cross-platform, and cross-device plug-in for delivering the next generation of media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web.

These new features and abilities hold great potential for the future of media on the internet! Check them out!
