As everyone on the hosting industry already knows..
WHMCS has taken another path to provide their software only to ‘enterprise’ companies with big pockets. They recently made a huge price changing to their licenses, and a ‘death’ to WHMCS lifetime licenses. So from now on they have a more detailed, price structure based on your regular active clients, the more active ones you have, the more fuc*ed you are.
They also gave an ‘end’ to the lifetime licenses by stopping support and updates starting on 1 June.
Seems like they aren’t thinking of their clients anymore and this is just too obvious. But the community didn’t went quiet at all. WHMCS reputation just went upside-down over the net, especially websites like Trustpilot:

WHMCS 8.1 is currently in Beta and is about to be released very soon (probably this 2020 year? i don’t think so.)
Where has WHMCS team been focused this .1 release?
It’s about(99%) the Client Area New Bootstrap 4 Design and child themes. Child themes? Let’s explain this further.
WHMCS is now introducing a very nice feature, child themes.
No longer do we have to zip all the files(including .tpl/php) to publish our new themes, no. We do not need to contain any longer the template files in our templates & themes, only the files we have customized, which mostly are the css files. This, as WHMCS team has explained, makes updating and maintaing of our themes easier for our clients and every designer will find this feature a superb!
