    Just saw there is Plesk 8.4 in the updater. However I can't find any release notes.
    What is new in this version? I guess nothing...

    What's new in Plesk 8.4.0 (based on the What's New inside Plesk) :

    - Simplified installation of site applications. All site applications are sorted by categories, which makes it easier to choose the right application to install.

    - DomainKeys support. Now you can use DomainKeys e-mail sender authentication mechanism to reduce the amount of spam and phishing e-mails that are sent to your customers. For more information, refer to the chapter Setting Up Spam Protection.

    - Updated components used with Plesk Control Panel. The latest versions of the following software can be used with Plesk Control Panel: Acronis True Image Server 9.5, Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder 4.2, Horde 3.1.7, SPAW 2.0 (editing software used in Plesk File Manager), Adobe ColdFusion 8.

    - 4PSA VoipNow software support. The VoIP solution developed by 4PSA is now fully supported by Plesk Control Panel. For information about 4PSA VoipNow, refer to http://www.4psa.com/index.php?pcat=p...ag=4psavoipnow

    And 2 others things :

    - You can choose to have database name with the customer name.
    - You can "protect" the DNS

    Ironic that we can now check for "DomainKeys" on incoming email, but we cannot conform to the DomainKeys specification ourselves with the outgoing email sent from the server.

    Will they ever implement this?

    'Setting Up Spam Protection Based on DomainKeys' says:

    So it is possible to use DomainKeys on outgoing mail.

    Yeah it's great to see they have finally properly implemented the DomainKeys specification. Very easy to setup too. I can confirm it works.

    A good surprise since it wasn't expected until Plesk 9.

    Well done Parallels!

    I'm having this same problem with 8.4.0 not being listed in the updater now. In fact, if I go to the updater in the control panel it says "No releases available" and doesn't list anything there. I just checked the update site http://autoinstall.plesk.com/ and it looks to me like there aren't even 8.4.0 packages there. Did the update site change with the new release maybe? Maybe they haven't synced up all the repositories yet or something. Anyone know what URL the older releases were using for update information?

    For this item it will by default truncate the clients username to 5 characters. I found no where in the UI to modify this setting, but you can change it directly in PSA database.

    Code:
    mysql -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` psa -e "insert into misc  values('db_user_length',10)"
    
    EDIT - it also looks like it has been pulled, its no longer appearing in the GUI updater.

    yeah looks like it has been pulled, most likely becuase of all the people suddenly having "problems" after the upgrade - if it even completes.

    Given the SwSoft mantra of updates and releases, I would never upgrade a production machine the first two weeks after a release, it will most likely kill your machine, and your customers will get pissed.

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    We need to block access to 8.4 Autoinstaller for couple of days.
    During this time, those who has managed to upgrade the product will not be able to get other updates.
    Please check the official announcements on the Parallels site.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
