DotNetNuke 5.3.1 Released

Products I am happy to announce that the DotNetNuke 5.3.1 release is now available for download.  This release was focused on fixing 3 significant issues with the 5.3.0 release which caused us to remove the release from CodePlex and our DotNetNuke Support Network.  It is never easy to admit that significant issues slipped through testing and made it into a release package forcing you to take drastic actions.  The only thing we can do is to re-evaluate our processes and continue to find areas for improvement – obviously we have some work to do.  Having just finished the sprint for 5.3.0 last week, we are finally getting around to our post-mortem on the release where we will look at what went right, and what went wrong.  It is only by taking a hard look at our processes and owning up to our mistakes that we can fix the problems that allowed this to occur.  We can and we will do better.

The changes for this release are outlined below.

Major Highlights

  • Issue fixed where Newsletter module only sent SMTP test email.
  • Issue fixed with signature change to Synchronize Folders methods.
  • Fixed the issue with the email notifications where the From and To addresses were swapped.

Security Fixes

  • None

Updated Modules/Providers

The following modules and providers have been updated in the 5.3.1 packages. Please see the specific project pages for notes on what bugs or enhancements were corrected with each release.


  • XML Module 04.03.05


  • none

As with any release, we recommend you perform a complete file and database backup before performing any upgrade on a production website and that you first conduct a trial upgrade on a staging version of the site.  Following these guidelines will ensure that you are able to recover should any unforeseen problems arise during the upgrade process.
