Centmin Mod 1.2.3-eva2000.07 preview highlights

It has been over 4 months since the last Centmin Mod 1.2.3-eva2000.06 release. The next release will be Centmin Mod 1.2.3-eva2000.07 which will have the most extensive changes and improvements since 1.2.3-eva2000.01. I’ve also put the Centmin Mod code and various beta branches on Github as well at https://github.com/centminmod/centminmod. Unfortunately, the previewed Nginx jailed chrooted vhost, domain and SFTP or SFTP+SSH code will not be making it into .07 release until more testing can be done.
