Release Notes

Major Highlights

  • Fixed issue where tabname lookup's were case-sensitive and caused problems when loading controls.
  • Fixed issue where Captcha control did not include a value for the Alt attribute.
  • Fixed issue where the Create New Module wizard allowed the user to select an invalid 'Owner' folder.
  • Fixed issue where uninstalling a module with 'delete files' unchecked deletes the files anyway.
  • Fixed issue where GetMappedDirectory would log an exception during install.
  • Fixed issue where the Starter kit was missing the HTML module.
  • Fixed issue where the source package did not include the HTML module.
  • Fixed issue with missing databaseowner and objectqualifier tags in the 5.2.1 SqlDataProvider script.
  • Fixed issue where portal templates ceased working in 5.2.1.
  • Fixed issue with page quotas where GetTabCount stored procedure had not been updated for localization changes introduced in 5.2.0.
  • Fixed issue where Host email test fails but no email addresses are listed in the error message.
  • Fixed issue where temp files were left if extension installation was cancelled.
  • Fixed issue where Captcha was not regenerated if login failed.
  • Reverted syntax that grants stored procedure permissions to previous version, as GRANT EXECUTE TO was problematic on shared hosts.
  • Fixed issue where vendor registration email did not contain the vendor name.
  • Added the ability to specify a custom animation function for the Visibility Widget.
  • Updated title and help text to make optional for forcing a captcha for associating logins clearer.
  • Added documentation to the Dynamic Module template that is displayed when a new module is created using the template.

Reviews for this release

Very smooth easy upgrade! Even a designer could do it ;)

As usual, DotNetNuke gets better with each release. I am loving that the project is having regular and meaningful releases adding stability and new features. This release is proof of that.

All stability issues seem to be dealt with. Best release so far. As always, upgrading's dead simple. Thanks team.

Another great release, 5.2.2 is the version of DNN I run on my sites.

After upgrading to 05.02.02 my host user cannot login. it gives an "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" :-( Nothing in the event log - very difficult to "debug"

upgrade all my portal sites to DNN 5.2.2 Not one single problem. Great work guys!

@muljadibudiman - this is by design. The source version is often overlaid over an existing install so it cannot have a web.config otherwise it will overwrite the existing site one. In addition you must compile the source solution - it has a post-build step that copies across all the necessary dlls (including telerik) to the bin folder.

Same issue with 5.2.1: New Install zip is good - followed instructions, when browsing it errors out. hint: In IIS Use Classic .NET AppPool, rather than DefaultAppPool. The Source Code package will result in a site that throws a NullReferenceException. This is because it's missing web.config - rename developer.config to web.config. Also need to copy Telerik.Web.UI.dll from New Package to bin folder

Upgraded 5.2.0 without any issues. No errors during upgrade. Changing my rating from 5 to 3 stars though. I get hundreds of errors every day on my event log: "Access to the path '\Cache\Modules\' is denied." -- it doesn't seem to affect the site, but the log grows exponentially... if you don't clear it daily.

Experienced an unresolved "An Error Occurred." with NO solutions in site. I even blogged about this bad experience. 5.2.2 is not ready for prime time IMHO.
by PHenry on Jan 27, 2010 at 3:40 AM
Awesome. I retract previous complaints for 5.2.1. This package far superior. No more HTML module issues in the starterkit, seamless upgrade from several sites (including some 4.x ones :)) Very happy.
