Updates versions as per release candidate creation

v9.7.1

Wednesday, September 9, 2020

Release Notes

We'd like to first thank everyone from the community who has submitted pull requests or reported issues. A grand total of 17 pull requests by 9 contributors were processed for this release.

Known issue

There is currently a known issue with Dnn 9.7.1 that affects token replace providers.

If you are doing a clean 9.7.1 install

No workaround needed, the normal install works fine.

If you are upgrading from 9.7.0 to 9.7.1

Nothing special is needed, this upgrade path will work.

If you are upgrading from any version before 9.7.0

  • Unzip the upgrade zip and add an empty text file named 09.07.00.SqlDataProvider in the Providers\DataProviders\SqlDataProvider folder.
  • Continue the upgrade as usual

If you have already upgraded to 9.7.1 before encountering this issue

  • Find the web.config file that is located in the root folder of the installation.
  • Create a copy of this file as a backup just in case.
  • Open the original web.config file that is in the root files of the installation in any text editor.
  • In the <sectionGroup name="dotnetnuke"> section add the following line:
<section name="tokens" requirePermission="false" type="DotNetNuke.Framework.Providers.ProviderConfigurationHandler, DotNetNuke" />
  • In the <dotnetnuke> section, add the following lines :
<tokens defaultProvider="CoreTokenProvider">
      <providers>
        <clear />
        <add name="CoreTokenProvider" type="DotNetNuke.Services.Tokens.CoreTokenProvider, DotNetNuke" />
      </providers>
    </tokens>

Additional information

Token replace providers are a recent feature (Dnn 9.7.0) and is probably not yet used by many 3rd party modules. But if you do see other configured providers for tokens, you may want to consult with the 3rd party module vendor for instructions on how to best merge this config with theirs.

Noteworthy Changes in v9.7.0

Potential breaking changes

There is a small potential breaking change if you use custom email templates, please read carefully the comments on #3808 if that is the case for your sites it is just a matter of adjusting those templates.

New issue management, milestones and roadmap

In our roadmap, Dnn 9.7.0 was to be our next release and include a new file manager. While we are still working on this new file manager we have also received a good mix of bugfixes and new features as pull requests. Because we were aiming at 9.7.0 we did not separate the bug fixes from the new features and the new file manager is not yet fully complete. This brought us to a decision point of holding bugfixes for longer or simply releasing and pushing the file manager to 9.8.0. After some discussions we realized that it is hard to work with specifically versioned milestones when we cannot know in advance which contributions will come in.

We have reworked our process to manage issues. Up until now we were trying to assign issues to a specific version number where it could go in providing someone would contribute a pull request to resolve it. This process was inefficient and on each new release we had to reassign every single unresolved issue to a new specific version. We will now use milestones for specific version numbers on pull requests only. For issues, we created new milesones as follows:

  • Future: Major - Issues that represent a breaking change that will go into a major release (e.g., major.minor.patch).

  • Future: Minor - Issues that represent a non-breaking feature that will go into a minor release (e.g., major.minor.patch).

  • Future: Patch - Issues that represent a bug fix, or non-breaking enhancement, that will go into a patch release (e.g., major.minor.patch).

We hope this process will bring better flexibility, we can decide on the version number just before release. We will in the future always assume that we will do a bugfix (patch) release and only switch to a minor release if we do have a new feature ready and merged.
