A happy Event: Events version 5.1.4 is released!

Restructuring settings and action menu

Team member Roger Selwyn has done a marvellous job in refactoring the internals of the Events settings, streamlining, centralizing and hardening it. He also altered the module configuration items from the standard settings DNN section into a separate action menu item with its own security settings, thus separating the standard DNN module settings (View, Edit) from the Events module settings. This will enable non web admins to manage the configuration of an Events module. He worked on a lot of issues and enhancements in the past months as well: more then 70 issues are covered in this release (Boy, everybody should be very happy that Roger is on the Events team!).

Restructuring the Events solution

My XCESS colleague Tim van Leeuwen got time from me to spend a couple of days (between our normal paid business activities) to tackle the C# project and restructure the Events solution. The result: 2 of the 4 projects gone, including the ‘old’ C# project. He created with jQuery the replacement of a colour picker in the categories and removed a lot of overhead: again about 6 ‘legacy’ source files gone. And now the VS solution of Events is organised in a more normal DNN way.

Automatic packaging and .dnn manifest creation

Tim also created an MS Build script and structure that enables us to create an Install and a Source pack version of the module automatically after each Visual Studio Release Build. During this build, the .dnn manifest file for the module is created completely automatically every time, from scratch! A great time saver for building modules.

We donated this MS Build project to the community, have a look at MS Build for DotNetNuke module development on CodePlex.

Were are the details?

More info about the details of this Events release can be found in the Events forum.

The new version of the Events module can be downloaded from the DNNEvents project on CodePlex.
