Right after our latest 18.104.22.168 release of Ubersmith, we started to work on the mountain of upcoming features we're looking to add to Ubersmith in the coming quarters. After our successful launch of integrated virtualization support, we've narrowed down a few key things we'll be including in our next release (due out this quarter). In addition to focusing on helping our merchants easily and quickly meet their PCI-DSS compliance obligations, our top goal is to push the speed envelope and user experience for the administrative features we know our customers rely on for running their businesses.
So, here is a quick overview of (some) of the new features that are coming up!
All-new Search System
We're very excited about the new search system based on Zend Search Lucene. This new search system will greatly improve the responsiveness of the search system, and allow users to search through their data in ways that weren't previously possible.
Hierarchical IP Address Management
The IP Address Management system is gaining the ability to "nest" IP Assignments within each other to create an IP Address hierarchy. This will help to streamline the way that Ubersmith tracks allocations and better support managing large client allocations.
Credit Card Processing Enhancements
As part of our commitment to providing our users with best-in-class credit card processing we're adding support for passing Level 2 and 3 data in transactions, and logging of AVS responses. We are also implementing new key management and encryption routines, as part of our PA-DSS certification process.
Building of the success of the Virtuozzo Containers integration in 1.7.0, we are extending the API to support automating virtualized infrastructure via Ubersmith.
These are just some of the highlights, as always there are countless smaller enhancements in the works!
