DotNetNuke 5.4.1 Released

Products I am happy to announce the release of DotNetNuke 5.4.1 which corrects the major issues which slipped through the QA process for 5.4.  While we try to do a good job in testing our releases, our recent efforts for 5.3 and 5.4 have fallen short of the mark.  We are currently working with a small team of commercial module developers and the core team to put a better public beta testing process in place that will help augment our own internal testing.  Ultimately, community testing is the only testing that truly scales, and we have struggled with how to effectively use the community even while keeping to a tight release schedule.  While this is not as critical for our stabilization releases where we seem to have no difficulty achieving an acceptable level of quality, it is absolutely essential that we have community feedback and testing of our quarterly feature releases. As usual, you can see the full list of changes for this release on the changelog.
