I cannot honestly tell you where the time has gone. I first embarked upon doing something about the Media Module as a team member in 2008. Unfortunately, for many reasons, the module never really was updated until last year. I was able to get a release out the door last June. Somehow, nearly a year has flown by since that release. Where did the time go?!! Well, I was able to put my head down a few times over the past few months, and I am very happy to say that I have another release nearly ready for the release tracker.
Here is a preview of some of the new things added to the module.
One thing that I wish I had done for the last release was to create an Alpha/Beta release for everyone to take a look at before the release. Being a team member of one, I know that the DotNetNuke release tracker process probably would’ve gone a lot smoother if I had.
Luckily, this time, we do have an Alpha release for everyone to get their eyes on. Please take some time in your day today to download, install, and test the release. Be sure to offer any feedback or suggestions to the Media Module forum.
DotNetNuke Media Module Version 04.00.00 Alpha
Please give any feedback that you have ASAP. I plan to send this module to the release tracker by the end of the week.
Remember… This release is not meant for any production website. You should install this module for testing purposes only. You are not guaranteed an upgrade path from this release. And finally, back-ups are your friend. Be diligent in your back-up practices.
