DNN Platform 7.3.1 Released!!

I am pleased to announce the official release of DNN Platform 7.3.1. This maintenance release comes on the heels of DNN Platform 7.3.0, a major release focused primarily on platform performance. The goal of this maintenance release is to be responsive to the needs of our users and customers by ensuring the reliability and integrity of the platform. The scope of this release was limited to addressing specific compatibility issues that were discovered in the weeks following the release of 7.3.0 that affected some installations. Summary release notes are included below and full technical details of the items included in this release are available through our public issue tracker. DNN Platform 7.3.1 can be downloaded from the Community Downloads page.

Major Highlights

  • updated jQuery.RequestRegistration to also include jquery-migrate ( which many third party skins rely on )
  • added back missing API methods to preserve binary compatibility
  • update 51 Degrees V3 to the latest assembly and data file
  • fixed case sensitivity issues with the scheduler and server names
  • rollback change to exclude portal.css by default
  • rollback to previous version of SharpZipLib assembly to preserve backward compatibility
  • fixed permission grid so that you can add additional roles
  • fixed user profile page alignment issues
  • fixed upgrade issue installing Knockout
  • fixed refactoring issue that would cause issues creating new pages

Security Issues

  • None

Community Contributions

  • Oliver Hine - pull request for fixing case sensitivity issues with the scheduler and server names

What has been done to the registration spam issue? I would have expected to at least replace the captcha option with a better one.

How does this 7.3.1 release affect the gained performance with 7.3.0?

@Tony - the bot registration issue requires a more elaborate solution than what was possible in the expedited 7.3.1 release. We will be tackling this in 7.3.2. In the meantime I would urge you to employ the options described in Cathal's blog

@Sergio - 7.3.1 retains all of the performance benefits of 7.3.0. Most of the items addressed in 7.3.1 were related to compatibility issues that were not related to system performance.

I was having an issue with portal.css not showing up even if I did enable it. Hope that issue is gone as custom skins do make use of portal.css a lot of the time...

@halshakarchi - the problem with portal.css not being included has been resolved in 7.3.1.

Hi Shaun. You said about the bot registration issue: "We will be tackling this in 7.3.2." When is that release planned to be available? Thanks
