Rilasciato DotNetNuke 5.0.1

Rilasciata la versione 5.0.1 di DNN che rimpiazza la precedente 5.0.0 e migliora diversi aspetti del CMS
Di seguito un estratto della news ufficiale con bugfix e nuove funzionalità.

Major Highlights

  • Added the ability to automatically update user roles without requiring the user to logout and log back in.
  • Changed the user deletion code to use a soft-delete rather than removing the user record.  This ensures that modules like the Forums behave correctly for a previously "deleted" user.
  • Added IP logging to the User's table to capture the last IP address from which a user logged in.
  • Fixed breaking change with case sensitivity in the name of skin panes.  This fix restores the case-insensitivity of previous DotNetNuke releases.
  • Fixed breaking change with ModuleId in DotNetNuke 5.0 which changed ModuleId to a readonly value.
  • Fixed breaking change in CBO.FillDictionary to restore previous behavior.
  • Fixed breaking change which prevented legacy skins from being installed when using the auto-install option.
  • Fixed breaking change which prevented updated DLLs from being replaced when repairing a module installation.
  • Fixed breaking change in HumanFriendlyUrls which prevented querystrings from being properly read when using HumanFriendlyUrls
  • Fixed breaking change in legacy modules which would not store a zip file which was not designated as a resource file.
  • Fixed breaking change in legacy modules which ignored zip directories.  DNN 5 changed this behavior.
  • Fixed breaking change in default.css which resulted in changes to existing skin layouts.
  • Fixed issue with roles module which prevented users from delegating role administration to a non-admin user.
  • Fixed issue which prevented some users from logging out due to the inability of the system to detect their country.
  • Fixed issue with Module Action Menu which prevented it from opening links in new windows.
  • Fixed issue that results in an error when the Cache logs an error under the new CACHE_ERROR event type
  • Fixed a packaging issue with FCKEditor which caused the LinkEditor to cause an unhandled exception.
  • Fixed an issue which resulted in the system not being able to display the portalaliases screen

Security Fixes

  • Fixed version information leakage issue in the install wizard

Rilasciata la nuova versione Professional di DNN

L'annuncio è di venerdì scorso (14 feb 2009). DotNetNuke esce in due versioni differenti, ma uguali nella sostanza. Differenti perchè una si chiama DNN Community e un'altra DNN Professional. Differenti perchè una è free e opon source (come sempre fino ad ora) e l'altra è a pagamento. Differenti perchè la versione Professional prevede dei servizi aggiuntivi (vedi assistenza ecc.)

Uguali perchè nella sostanza non cambia nulla, il software rimane lo stesso e Chris Hammond nel suo post garantisce che la versione Community sarà uguale a quella Professional.

Per approfondire l'argomento ecco il link al post originale.
