DNNProductsI’m pleased to announce that DotNetNuke 6.2.1 and 5.6.8 are officially released. These maintenance releases contain several updates which further emphasizes our commitment to security, performance and overall quality of DotNetNuke.  We will continue to release maintenance updates as needed while we continue to see more users make the transition from older versions of DotNetNuke.   

As a reminder, we are in the process of doing some housekeeping in our bug tracking system.  I encourage you to take a few minutes to read the message on the main page of  Moving forward, the Quality Assurance and Product Management teams will be more proactive in responding to submitted issues.  If an issue you submitted was closed and you feel it is still valid for DotNetNuke 6.x please don’t hesitate to reopen the issue with additional comments.  Please be sure to use Community Voice for new feature requests and enhancements.  If you have specific questions we ask that you share your question in the Community Exchange.
