DNN 7.2.0 Is now Available

The last couple of months were very exciting times as we got closer and closer to the 7.2.0 release. Part of my excitement about 7.2.0 is because of some great new features, but I am even more excited by the increased level of community participation that we had for this release.

During this release cycle we saw increased participation not just from long-time core team members, but also from the broader community.  We are working hard to make it easier than ever to get involved with DNN and it is starting to pay off. I look forward to continuing this effort with additional training and resources to enable people who want to help but are having trouble getting started.

I want to specifically thank the community members who contributed code during this release. Without them we would not have some of the key features and bug fixes for DNN 7.2.0.  Contributors (in no particular order):

Peter Donker, Vicenc Masanas, Henry Tavarez, Ralph Williams, Brian Dukes, Brandon Haynes, Stefan Cullman, Sebastian Leupold, Will Strohl, Julien Girerd and Chris Hammond.

We are already seeing community contributions come in for 7.2.1. If you would like to participate but are unsure where to begin, leave a comment and I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.

DNN 7.2.0 includes the following features and enhancements:

Updated SQL Module Enhanced Search including User Profiles
New Module CreatorCopy page permissions
User Tagging in Social Journal Subscription and Digest Notifications
Responsive Design Skin JavaScript Library Management
Enhanced Digital Asset Manager New Getting Started Experience

NOTE: Items highlighted in green were contributed by community members.

These are just a few of the many issues we resolved for 7.2.0.  For a full list of all the features, enhancements and issues included in this release see the 7.2.0 Change log on our issue tracker.

You can download the 7.2.0 release from our downloads page.

Will this also work as an upgrade to the community edition or will that be a separate upgrade package?

Thank you for this update, and allowing us to participate more easily. Being able to provide some code to correct or improve DNN is really nice and very motivating to participate. #DNNRocks

@Patrick - Joe is talking about the community edition (or platform as we now call it), so just download the standard upgrade. If you are a customer there are separate upgrade packages for those editions

Hi, We are really impressed with the work that has gone into DNN 7x and especially DNN 7.2. So far, you've been providing the exact features we've wanted when we needed them. Now we're starting to catch up and push the envelope a bit -- time for us to pay if forward. We have a pretty broad and diverse range of skills, and are particularly good at documentation (where I feel the need for more in the SuperUser manual, as well as an organization structure that's easier to work with/more manageable).Please let me know what we can do to help. Thank you. David Baumann, CEO and General Counsel | TechNexxus, LLC
