I am not a software person. I have been using computers since 1980 and the Internet since 1985. I have used the Windows, Apple IOS and Linux platforms.
Apart from a very limited number of exceptions (in fact only one) I always prefer the latest version of software. The exception that has shown up, is the cPanel Paper Lantern Theme.
Not being a software person, I cannot comment upon its merits or demerits, except the user-friendliness aspect. I myself, and barring one, all the rest of my volunteer team are highly uncomfortable with it.
One of the major features that we love about the X3 Theme was the ability to right click files and open them from within the cPanel. There is either something we haven't discovered, or the right click functionality to view files in a new tab does not exist in the Paper Lantern Theme. This itself is a major issue.
Earlier, we had requested we be reverted to the X3 theme, and this was granted. This time we are being told that the X3 Theme is no longer available.
Premier providers of software always allow for reversion to earlier versions. Why not cPanel, or whoever manages the development of the cPanel interface?
Would love to be enlightened.
