List of new features and improvements that have been added to ChargeBee in February & March 2014. This list will be updated as we make new releases.
PDF invoices as attachments
Invoice receipts can now be sent as PDF attachments along with the email notification.
You now have more control over the field elements and text content on the hosted pages. Specify which fields you need to show on the hosted pages (custom fields not
supported yet) and also edit the text content (useful for localization).
Here's more on that: https://www.chargebee.com/docs/hp_configuration.html
Note: This feature is currently only available for new users who've signed up after March 1st. For users who've signed up before that and need to switch over to the new hosted pages, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get this enabled.
Dashboard gets 2 new additional details:
1. Committed Revenue. This is the expected revenue calculated from the revenue already received plus invoices in dunning and upcoming renewals.
2. Total Subscription count. A count of the total number of subscriptions that are currently in "Active" and "Non Renewing" state.
The coupon section gets search filters, sorting and advance filters making it much easier for you to locate coupons.
Our daily report email now has a new look and has links to the values indicated that will take you straight to the application.
Support for the Malaysian Ringgit and Nigerian Naira is now available.

API for recording payments on invoices
Very useful for merchants using offline subscriptions to track ACH, cash and check payments. Earlier "Payment Due" invoices could only be recorded as "Paid" through the admin console, but this is now possible through the API as well.
