Release Notes

DotNetNuke 6.2.0 RC

This is the first DotNetNuke release which includes capabilities from the Active Modules acquisition last year. A tremendous amount of thought and planning has gone into making the integration as seamless as possible. We have already done a significant amount of testing, but you shouldn’t be surprised if you come across a few bugs. I also need to point out that we aren’t finished with the Active Social integration. Please don’t panic if you see something missing.

Journal Module

One of the more critical pieces to a successful collaboration platform is the activity stream. In DotNetNuke 6.2, we have created a module and API that will allow you to easily display and create activities within your site. The Journal Module has been completely re-written to provide a more simplified and intuitive user experience. Look for more details about the Journal over next few days

User File Manager

As part of building the new Journal Module, we wanted to provide a better way for users to manage their own files within DotNetNuke. Instead of uploading a file multiple times, the Journal now allows the user to browse existing files and attach to a Journal message. The functionality in the User File Manager is limited to browsing and selecting files, but expect to see additional enhancements before the final release.

Member Directory

A member directory is vital to the success of any collaborative site or site that is based upon user-to-user interaction. Not only do users need to be able to find other users within a site, but they also need to filter the list based upon various types of criteria. The new Member Directory module is awesome! It provides you with easy to access templates and filter options, plus it performs extremely well. The member directory also exposes options for creating friends, adding followers and sending private messages. If you have a testing or development site with a large number of users, we would love to get your feedback on using the Member Directory module.

Messaging

Messaging, similar to email, provides a mechanism for users to communicate within a site in a private manner. In most cases, messaging will be between two users, but it can also include multiple users as well. If you have used the Messaging module in DotNetNuke before, you will find this module extremely different, but in a very positive way. The new messaging module allows you to send to Social Groups (Roles) and also include attachments. You can also address messages to users with a Facebook style autocomplete.

Social Groups

The Social Groups module is still in the early stages of development, but by using the CTP you will be able to see the direction we are heading. We have also made some changes to Roles to better support our needs for Social Groups. Social Groups are actually quite similar in functionality to Member Directory and User Profile. You will be able to see a list of groups, create groups and have a group specific journal. Look for a blog post in the next few days that outlines more details about how to use Social Groups in the CTP.

Other Features

There are a few other smaller features and enhancements included in this release, here is the list:

Tab Hierarchy Improvements
Changes to Maximum Roles
Changes to Profile Visibility
User Relationships
Global Input Filter
SSL Offloading
Secure User Settings

There is a typo in the german Languagepack for version 6.2.0 in the file globalresources.de-DE.resx is written: <data name="EMAIL_USER_UPDATED_OWN_PASSWOR_SUBJECT.Text" and it should be (missing D) <data name="EMAIL_USER_UPDATED_OWN_PASSWORD_SUBJECT.Text this leads to a Nullpointer in "subject" an no mail can be sent.

Joiseystud, thank you for heading on the correct name, which has now been put on to the download.

Why is this called an rtm? Shouldnt this be an "RC"?

I'm pretty new to DNN, but very little to do with the user registrations and profiles seems to work. Avatars don't save sometimes and don't show in the default (Dark Knight) skin. Creating user accounts also seems to be badly broken, both as an admin and via self registration. Not enough space here for details, but lots of problems. No errors on install reported. Using PowerDNN hosting.

CSS files are not loading. If we are required to make some change for this version to work, should have a ReadMe file saying what it is.

According to DNN support. SSL Offloading IS NOT AVAILABLE in this 6.2.0 release yet. It will be available in 6.2.1.

Member directory suggestions: Have dynamic loading of content. Similar to the old Effority User Directory. In fact, perhaps it is worth asking Effority if their now open source code can be added to the core. It's a great module, just slightly out of date for DNN 6 with a few bugs. http://userdirectory.codeplex.com/

Once you add a custom role, add a group role, then go back in to the custom role to assign it to the new group role, it does not let you update the custom role. The error shows on the Advanced tab, but you cant see it unless you go to the advanced tap. It states the Billing Period Must Be Greater Than Zero and the same for the trial period. These are both set to -1 as a default.

Still no Telerik 2012 version which has several bug fixes from latest 2011 version DNN currently uses...

@Xeevis - Page Management has not changed this behavior since 6.0 release and that is the expected result. Look for many more features in CTP 2 coming very soon!

Here are my results from testing: 1. Photo Upload works - but when you hover over "Browse from site" it turns into the typical "hand" icon to indicate it is clickable, this is not the case with 'Upload from my computer'. 2. Attachment option does not function at this time. - When You click on the paperclip nothing happens. 3. View change options, you can change who can view the entry, but when you

Introduced bug into page management where disabling/enabling children pages moves them to the bottom of their hierarchy. Journal module has more bugs and quirks than functionality ... CTP for real :).

@bstalte - i believe this is planned for 6.1.4 -which means we will merge those changes into 6.2.0 when it releases-depending on date that may be the next CTP or be the first beta.
