cPanel’s X3 theme has long been the most popular cPanel interface for our users. Since it is developed and maintained by the cPanel developers it also tends to be the most reliable and bug free interface. In addition to the upgrade to Horde Groupware Webmail Edition 5.1, cPanel version 11.42 brought with it the first stable release of cPanel’s new Paper Lantern theme.
As you can see, this theme is quite a shift from the X3 theme that most of us having been using for a long time. It is a very simple, clean looking theme. This theme is still in active development so this is just the very beginning. Quite a few changes have already been made to it and these will automatically appear on our servers as soon as they make their way down in a stable release. You can sample the latest version on cPanel’s demo server here and you’ll immediately notice some subtle yet positive changes.
The latest stable release of Paper Lantern is available on our servers and can be selected by adjusting the theme setting within your WHM packages. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
