DotNetNuke “Hadron” 6.0.0 Community Technology Preview

Finalmente ci siamo. E' stata rilasciata la versione 6.0.0 di DotNetNuke (nome in codice "Hadron"). L'aspetto più interessante è la conversione in C# (ecco l'articolo). Ne avevo già parlato la settimana scorsa e avevo già detto di qunato fosse importante questo cambiamento. In un certo senso questa scelta posizione il nostro amato CMS in una vascia più interessante in cui gli sviluppatori sono più numerosi.

DotNetNuke dalla versione 6.0 sarà riscritto in c#

In questo interessante articolo (di Chris Hammond) viene comunicato che dalla versione 6.0 di DNN l'ambiente di sviluppo sarà in C# e non più in VB. Questo cambiamento è una cosa positiva a mio parere e comunque Chris Hammond nell'articolo analizza molto bene quali sono le conseguenze di tale scelta e quali sono le prime reazioni degli utenti.
