Thats their fault for turningon all the features.
If you stick to the basic feature set then cpanel is quite stable.
Anonymous FTP was not dropped.
ProFTP had a security issue so any hosts using it had to switch to another
Cpanel has PureFTP as an alternative but it does not support anon ftp.
That would be why anon ftp disappeared.
However, not many hosts provide anon ftp these days.
We don't so it had no effect on us.
