DotNetNuke is an open source web application framework written in VB.NET for the ASP.NET framework. The application’s content management system is extensible and customizable through the use of skins and modules, and it can be used to create, deploy, and manage intranet, extranet, websites and many more.

Many modules are included with the core DotNetNuke software distribution, and further modules can be downloaded from the DotNetNuke website, including e-commerce systems, photo galleries, blogs, forums, wiki and mailing list options. Additional third party modules are provided by both the open source community and proprietary commercial DNN developers.

Fixed issues with the URL Rewriter. There were several issues which could result in unreachable pages using friendly URLs. We have added in validation logic to prevent pages from being created which would violate folder naming standards or which would result in two pages receiving the same Human Friendly URL.

Fixed longstanding issue in the file based caching provider. There was invalid logic in the caching provider which prevented it from working correctly. The provider has been re-written to resolve the problem and provide a stable platform for web-farm scenarios.

Fixed several DotNetNuke dictionary errors. These errors mostly occurred under heavy load or were otherwise intermittent. Dictionary usage was evaluated throughout DNN and updated to utilize thread-safe approaches for updating and caching the dictionary.

Fixed an issue that prevented users in certain locales from adding modules to div based panes.
