DotNetNuke 5.0 Are Available Now!

Posted on: January 5, 2009

DotNetNuke 5.0 as Website Content Management System

Unlike 4.9.1, DNN 5 was a massive change that involved hundreds of bug fixes, changes and enhancements. A large number of the bug fixes and a few of the changes were back ported to the 4.8.x and 4.9.x branches, however there are still many bug fixes and enhancements which are only available in DNN 5.

DotNetNuke 5.0 is the culmination of over a year of development and testing. Without a doubt this is the most tested version of DotNetNuke ever released.

Major changes and fices on DotNetNuke 5.0

1) Expanded XHTML, WCAG and ADA compliance.

2) Refactored core to improve support for Unit Testing. Refactored several core classes to use interfaces and added a simple component factory to provide dependency injection support.

3) Added Widget framework. The new Widget framework allows you to quickly add JavaScript/html widgets to your site with very little effort.

4) Added new Object notation for using skin objects in Skins. Skin designers will no longer need to include separate XML files when creating and packaging skins.

5) Updated the installation services to support manifest files for all extension types. Now skins, containers, providers and modules are all first class citizens that can be installed and uninstalled.

6) Added support for Internet Explorer 8 Web Slices. Administrators can configure any module to use IE8 Web Slices including the ability to set time-to-live and expiration values.

and much much more!
