Blesta 5.4 is now available! This release has additional improvements to the domain manager, custom ticket fields for support departments, data feeds with embed codes for your website including a TLD pricing grid, the ability to manually scale the size of your logo for the client area, config option overrides to allow module rows and groups to be chosen by the client (great for allowing the client to choose the location for their hosting after selecting their plan), and much more!
If upgrading from a release prior to 5.0, please review the version 5.0 announcement prior to upgrading. 5.0 was a major release and increased system requirements. ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR FILES + DATABASE PRIOR TO UPGRADING.
See the documentation for details on how to install or upgrade.
