Reviews for this release

I followed the advice of those before me and upgraded the XML Module to the newest version first. After that the upgrade went off without a hitch. So far everything is working in testing.

This is a good try to implement content localization and i recommend in conent localization to take the approach for making every module has a localization variable to define in which locale it will be rendered, but for this release its considered to be VERY Buggy

After upgrading from 5.2.3 to 5.3.1 I have a problem with the register link that does not link anymore to the custom registration page (with the Dataspring Dynamic User Registration module on it). Although I configured in the admin settings that the register link should link to my custom registration page, the registration link keeps referring to the default registration page.

After upgrading my test installation on local workstation from DNN 5.2.3 to this 5.3.1 version, the Register link does not work. This is a critical flaw and cannot be deployed to prod until it is fixed.

XML Module users, please do yourself a favor and upgrade the module to 4.3.5 (available at prior to upgrading the Core. In case you run into any trouble because you missed that step, just delete the file \App_Code\XML\Handlers\download.vb. The latest Xml module is also part of the core distribution and can be installed from Host->Extensions-> Install Available Extensions.

Huge headache with upgrade. Anyone reading this should READ THIS first: Most important to note: must upgrade XML module prior to installing this version.

I had the same problem with upgrading from 5.2.0 seems like someone forgot to put System.Web.HttpHandler and System.Web.HttpContext in the methods in download.vb in the XML module. Simple fix really. Once I did that it installed just fine.

Did an upgrade and broke with a compilation error my website when I tried to update. Compilation Error invalid reference to Web.HttpHandler
