DotNetNuke 5.1.3 Released

With the month of September coming to a close it is time once again for another DotNetNuke Stabilization release. 


DotNetNuke 5.1.3 resolves almost 40 issues with the previous release and further stabilizes the 5.x codebase.  Given the stability of the recent 5.x releases it should not come as any surprise that the fixes in this release tend to be narrow edge cases or resolved problems where well known workarounds were available.  We also added a minor modification that improves the ability of administrators to email event logs to their support providers.  This will allow system integrators, hosters and consultants providing DotNetNuke customer support to get a better snapshot of errors that the user is experiencing without relying on the user to accurately cut and paste error messages. The changes outlined below were incorporated in these releases.  As usual, the complete details for all of the changes can be found in the ChangeLog.

Major Highlights

  • Added the ability to specify a subject line when emailing event viewer logs
  • Modified the event viewer to include event logs as email attachments when emailing the event logs
  • Added the ability to use dictionary objects for token replacement in system messages
  • Fixed an issue which caused an error whenever edititng the Site Settings.
  • Fixed issue which caused an error trying to retrieve a role group by name
  • Fixed an issue which prevented a skin from being able to be re-installed or uninstalled.
  • Fixed issue where Html module was displaying unpublished content
  • Fixed issue where URLs for pages within the site were always being created as relative which is a change from previous versions.
  • Removed solution explorer page from the Admin menu and removed the Marketplace feed from the OPML file.
  • Fixed issue with upgrading DotNetNuke 4.x skins when upgrading site to DotNetNuke 5.x
  • Fixed issue which resulted in incorrect URL for SiteMap in a child portal
  • Fixed issue which caused error when deleting files from the Host file manager.
