  • SmarterMail Upgrade

    5 comments May 16th, 2017 35

    SmarterMail v16 is now released after many months in beta testing. We have been working with SmarterTools as well as many of our largest customers in testing and polishing of the beta and can say this is the most rock-solid SmarterMail released we have seen since we started with SmarterMail back at v1. This new build is a completely different SmarterMail than what our customers are used to seeing and using. A completely rewritten interface, many new features and more!

  • Coming Soon – SmarterMail 16

    No comments April 25th, 2017 58

    We are very pleased to announce that SmarterMail v16 is just around the corner! Not weeks away… DAYS!!! SmarterMail v16 has been rewritten from the ground up, given a completely fresh and redesigned interface and our favorite feature so far! The ability to have live meetings online using chat as well as video, even a live drawing board, share files and more!

    SmarterMail v16 has a brand new fully API driven design that can allow developers access to all functions of SmarterMail, even the ability to write full features desktop and mobile clients around the SmarterMail API!

    Check out some of the screenshots we’ve captured to give an idea of how much SmarterMail has changed!

    Past major upgrades have been applied usually pretty quickly by our systems admin team, however, with this being a major rewrite of the SmarterMail code base, we may sit the launch out for a few minor releases just to make sure all issues are caught by early adopters. The upgrade will depend though on reports that we see on their forums as well as speaking to their support to decide how others upgrades and launches are going.

    Rest assured though, ASPnix will be upgrading to the latest and greatest of SmarterMail very soon!

  • PHP 7.1 Final Now Available for Windows

    No comments December 5th, 2016 185

    php7-transparent

    We are pleased to announce that PHP 7.1 has been released and is now ready for production use! All customers can upgrade and start using PHP 7.1 immediately!

    PHP 7.1 includes many improvements and new features such as…

    In our local tests PHP 7.1 performs slightly better than 7.0, the focus of the new release was more towards new features and improvements, not necessarily around execution performance. Those interested in upgrading to PHP 7.1 can check the migration guide at http://php.net/manual/en/migration71.php.

    As always, before doing any changes to your website, we recommend testing your site fully first before just changing the PHP version and leaving it. PHP 7 has many breaking changes from older versions that can cause major issues with your website. Please check with your application developer before making any changes to confirm compatibility.

    We hope everyone enjoys the new release! If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please let us know.

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix as your web hosting provider!

  • Windows Control Panel Migration

    No comments June 23rd, 2016 521

    There will be a brief interruption of our Windows Control Panel system around 11:30AM MDT for about 30 – 60 minutes while we complete the migration of the system to a new server and complete some additional upgrades.

    During this time customers will not be able to access the Windows Control Panel and scheduled tasks will not be executing. Once the migration and upgrades are completed the system will resume normal operations. This maintenance will improve the performance of the control panel system especially when dealing with large files through the file manager.

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix!
