We apologize for the silence on information on the planned updates for these addons. We've been quite busy working on them and have been solely focused on that. We've had some requests for a status update on both, so we thought it would be best to make an announcement discussing them.

Elavon VirtualMerchant/Converge

This module is coming along well - after some bumps with the new 3DSecure implementation by Elavon and trying to get it to work within the confines of what WHMCS itself allows, we've seem to have found ways to make it work as needed and have been able to perform several successful tests on Elavon's demo system so far. We still need to test for the various challenge requests that may be required, and are attempting to determine the specific criteria needed to trigger them as the Elavon documentation doesn't currently provide test cards to trigger these specific failures on their demo system. Once that has been tested and confirmed working as would be expected, we will then perform a final round of live testing for 1 to 2 weeks to find any remaining issues (in particular, any unexpected that are due to differences in the behavior of the demo system and live).

We are expecting to be ready for release on May 30th.

PayPal Billing Agreements

This module is currently undergoing development due to improving handling of Seller Protection on billing agreements.  So far, there isn't much to share: it seems that PayPal expects all billing agreements to require specific details that are normally not applicable to products sold via WHMCS, and we are in communication with Merchant Technical Support to determine the appropriate course of action.
