DotNetNuke 7.0 Only Weeks Away!

FinishLineThe software industry moves at a lightning pace, and it is only through constant focus and continuous investment that a software product can remain both stable and relevant over the long term. As we approach the 10 Year Anniversary of the DotNetNuke platform, it seems only fitting that we are on the verge of announcing yet another significant product milestone. DotNetNuke 7.0 is just around the corner and represents a bold step forward for our Content Management Platform, including substantial business productivity enhancements, investments in web platform relevance, and a significant overhaul and modernization of the user interface and user experience.

It has been five months since I posted the announcement that the next major version of the platform was going to be DotNetNuke 7.0.  This announcement created tremendous excitement and anticipation in the DotNetNuke community, as major version increments have always been utilized as an opportunity  to introduce revolutionary new product features and capabilities. After months of intense product development, the finish line is finally in sight.


With that, I am pleased to announce that we released a Release Candidate (RC) of DotNetNuke 7.0 yesterday. You can download the RC from our project page on Codeplex. A Release Candidate represents a software version which is very near to “release” quality. So although we will not be officially endorsing the RC for production use, or providing an official upgrade path, it does represent a significant milestone in our software development efforts ( if you are looking for a more detailed explanation of our software release terminology, I would encourage you to read the blog written by Co-Founder, Joe Brinkman titled "What's In A Name?" ).

Modernizing a software platform does have its share of challenges from a backward compatibility perspective and, as usual, we are taking great care in ensuring a seamless upgrade path for our customers. In order to remain relevant and progressive, you need to be aware that DotNetNuke 7.0 has adopted a new set of baseline infrastructure requirements including ASP.NET 4.0.  As a result we are encouraging all major stakeholders in the ecosystem ( module developers, designers, partners, customers, etc... ) to take the opportunity to install the RC in their own local environments. This is the last opportunity to let us know about any final issues which may need to be addressed prior to final release.

Mark your calendars now… the expected public release date (RTM) for DotNetNuke 7.0 will be Wednesday, November 28th.

On a side note, we expect to release a 6.2.5 Maintenance version today. This release contains some high priority product quality improvements as well as security patches for some vulnerabilities reported through our standard ecosystem channels. As a result we will be encouraging all of our customers to upgrade to the 6.2.5 release as soon as it is available.

I hope everyone is as excited as I am about the upcoming DotNetNuke 7.0 release. Please take the opportunity over the next week to put the new platform through its paces. Remember, only through our collective efforts can we ensure that this release has the greatest market impact of any DotNetNuke release to date.

As many of us were practicing for much of our last transfer, Sarah and even I boxed up a lot of our CD collection. It match pretty nicely right into a few transferring boxes, so many of us loaded it at the truck and even left.

I give a response after I like a post on an online site or if perhaps I have some thing to contribute to the discussion. Generally it is brought about by the interest displayed in the post I read. And after studying this post at SCULTURE. I was truly moved enough to make a feedback I really do have a few questions for you if it's okay. Could it possibly be only me or do a number of these replies appear just as if they're posted by brain empty folks? And, if you are posting at additional websites, I would like to follow you. Would you like to share your online community pages just like your twitter feed, Facebook or linkedin account?

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup.

Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .

net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of

the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been

using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about

switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.

net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?

Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

I do not know if it's just me or if everyone else experiencing problems with your blog. It seems like some of the text in your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen previously.

Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with

HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any

widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my

newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
