DotNetNuke 5.5 Getting Closer to Release

Multi-Language2Last night we posted another beta of DotNetNuke 5.5 which you can access from the beta release page on  This is probably your last chance to provide feedback on the 5.5 release as we are nearing completion of the testing cycle.  You can have a direct impact on the quality of the 5.5 release if you act today.

Since the last beta release 2 weeks ago, the DotNetNuke team has been busy cleaning up bugs and validating the user scenarios for the new Content Localization feature.   During this time more than a 160 bugs and enhancements have been implemented.  Many of these changes have been as the result of feedback we received from the earlier alpha and beta releases.  In addition to all of the work on Content Localization we have fixed a number of longstanding bugs and made major strides on improving performance.  We are hoping to be able to wrap up testing soon so that we can get a final release out to the community this summer.

Content Localization required many foundational changes to DotNetNuke so it is important that we get as much feedback as possible.  If you have an existing DotNetNuke website, try to perform an upgrade on a backup copy of your site.  If you are a module developer, run your module through some installation and upgrade scenarios.  If you are skin designer, make sure that your skins install and work correctly.  If you are new to DotNetNuke, give the beta a trial run and let us know what you think. 

Once you have done your testing then let us know your results – good or bad.  You can post any issues you find on our issue tracker.  You can also discuss the betas on the Open Core Testing forums.  Let us know what you liked, what you didn’t like or what problems you are having.  Open Source works best when you get involved.

Overall, 5.5 is shaping up to be one of our most significant releases in the last 2 years and your help would be greatly appreciated in making sure this release is as solid as possible.
