Announcing DotNetNuke 6.2!

DotNetNuke 6.2!

Everyone is talking social. And evidence is mounting that social collaboration has real business benefit. Social intranets drive employee productivity and increased efficiency. Communities turn customers into advocates and help grow business.

The latest version of DotNetNuke builds on the already strong Web Content Management System (WCMS) capabilities that have made it the number one Web content solution in the Microsoft ecosystem. The new release enables businesses to quickly build internal social networks to improve collaboration, communication and employee productivity. It also enables the creation of external communities that turn customers into advocates, which lowers support cost and increases revenue opportunities.

DotNetNuke 6.2 creates opportunities for everyone in our ecosystem.  The new Social API and Service Framework will allow developers to create engaging applications to further enhance the DotNetNuke platform.

Activity Feed 
The DNN 6.2 Journal is an activity feed which enables community members to interact by posting and replying to status updates, tagging users and sharing links, files, photos and videos.
User Relationships 
DNN 6.2 allows users to friend and follow other users or groups and to receive notifications which allow them to approve or reject new friends and followers.
Social Groups 
DNN 6.2 fosters collaboration through the ability to create social interest groups. Users can join groups and share content with group members. Discussion forums can also be associated with social groups enabling members to ask and respond to questions and gain feedback on new ideas.
Interactive User Profile 
DNN 6.2 empowers community members to create and manage a personal profile and dashboard which offers flexible privacy controls, personal file storage and a user focused activity feed.
Message Center 
DNN 6.2 includes an integrated messaging center that enables users to respond to notifications and interact with other users or groups through messages that are similar to email.
Member Directory 
A member directory enables users to find and connect with other users on the site.
Social Authentication 
DNN 6.2 makes it easier than ever before for customers and prospects to participate in an online community. Users can now register and login with their Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Live credentials.
SharePoint 2010 Support 
The DNN 6.2 Enterprise Edition improves internal document collaboration through integration with Microsoft SharePoint 2010 as well as SharePoint 2007. DNN 6.2 now enables organizations to publish one SharePoint view or directory to multiple DNN web sites or publish multiple views to a single DNN site.
Localized into Four New Languages 
DotNetNuke Corporation now supports four additional core languages: Dutch, French, German and Spanish. With DNN 6.2 organizations can now download and install fully localized versions of the DNN Content Management Platform and work in their preferred language.
Social API for Developers 
The DNN 6.2 Social API enables developers to write applications that access and control the activity feed, user relationships, social groups, user profiles and notifications. DNN 6.2 also provides support for modern, client-based development techniques. It includes the jQuery, jQueryUI and Knockout.js development libraries and the new DNN Service Framework. The DNN Service Framework enables developers to create application services that any device that uses HTTP can call.

As always, remember to do a trial upgrade in a test environment and to make a file and database backup prior to upgrading to DotNetNuke 6.2. While most of your DotNetNuke 4 & 5 modules and skins will work in DotNetNuke 6.2, some of our vendors have already started releasing updated versions of their modules that take advantage of new DotNetNuke 6.2 features, so check with them to see if upgrades for your modules or skins already exist.
