DotNetNuke Blog 4.0 Release Candidate on CodePlex

windows-7-release-candidateThis is just a quick post to let you know that the RC (Release Candidate) of the Blog Module version 04.00.00 has been posted on here, on CodePlex.

What is RC?

WikiPedia Says: The term release candidate (RC) refers to a version with potential to be a final product, ready to release unless fatal bugs emerge. In this stage of product stabilization all product features have been designed, coded and tested through one or more Beta cycles with no known showstopper-class bug. When a version get to the Release Candidate cycle, only one iteration should be nescessary.

Ok, but what does this mean?

Folks, this means that we are about to submit this iteration (RC)  to the DotNetNuke release process. Once the module passes all required tests it will be posted as the final 04.00.00 release.

The fine print:

  • Do not upgrade a beta version of the 4.x product line. This is not supported. Please start from 03.05.01
  • This is a RELEASE CANDIDATE, and as such it is not supported and it should not be deployed in production environments.
  • This release is provided for test purposes ONLY.
  • Although we do not expect any more significant changes we cannot guarantee an upgrade path to the 04.00.00 release version.
  • Please help us by reporting your bugs and issues in the issue tracker and clearly label them as Blog RC.

And here is something, just for fun

While looking through the blog forum threads this morning I found this interesting post:


I really don’t know how to answer that. Maybe DotNetNuke should fire me? But how? - The last time I checked we weren’t receiving paychecks, and we were working VERY hard to get a SOLID release out.

For the record, sir, we just went through 1 Alpha, 3 Betas, and 1 RC… and that is without counting the internal builds that we tested relentlessly. On behalf of the entire Blog team, I apologize for not meeting up to your expectations ;-)

Enjoy the RC:
