DNN 7.3.3 Released

I am pleased to announce that DNN Platform 7.3.3 has been released. The 7.3.3 release was a stabilization release. One of the highlights for this release was the significant number of pull requests we received from community members. The community provided over 40% of all fixes that went into the 7.3.3 release which is definitely in keeping with the spirit of joint ownership and development of the DNN Platform. I look forward to increasing this level of participation coming in future releases.

You can download the latest release from the Community Downloads page.

Major Highlights

  • Enhanced DDR Menu to allow menus to be filtered by page tags
  • Enhanced messaging system to support additional tokens
  • Enhanced core library to include extension methods for creating/manipulating XML documents
  • Fixed issue where notifications were not updated without a page refresh
  • Fixed issue where site management was not working correctly with site skins
  • Fixed issue where upgrades can fail due to a versioning issue
  • Fixed issue where foldermanager was inefficient in iterating child folders and files in a given folder
  • Fixed issues where RadEditor provider did not work correctly in IE11
  • Fixed issue where custom page URLs were not properly formatted
  • Fixed issue where page settings were not properly saved for localized pages
  • Fixed issue where sample Razor script would list all users in an installation
  • Fixed issue where improper module manifest can break extensions page
  • Fixed issue where social modules did not update search index appropriately
  • Fixed issue where malformed profile urls or profile pages for deleted users caused error in event log
  • Fixed issue where upgrades failed for case sensitive SQL collations
  • Fixed issue where reordering tabs in one portal affected tab order in other portals

I want to give a special mention to Torsten Weggen who we missed in the 7.3.2 community contribution section of the release notes.  Torsten added an enhancement that allows portal admins to select an alternate icon set. Thank you Torsten for the contribution.

i installed the update today but i can't understand why it's not possible to make an update where the radeditor works with IE11 corrctly?

now i can insert images but i can't create links.
that's the code that the editor puts into the text field at the beginning and at the end of the marked text:

Im surprised this issue didnt get addressed in this release. I have site settings drop downs still not working on all my latest DNN deployments.

@Michael, I don't see the same thing, when I try a link in IE11 in the radeditor (first page, then link) I see the following

<p><a href=""></a></p>
<p><a href="http://localhost/dnn_platform/en-us/">Home</a></p>

@Les -that issue is caused by hosts installing a different version newtownsoft.dll into the GAC of their servers - as this overrides DNN's version that causes the issue. As such the problem is with the hosts and not with DNN. However we are planning on upgrading newtownsoft in 7.3.4 so that will likely fix the issue.

@cathal connolly

which version should the provider install of the newtownsoft.dll ?

dnn 7.3.3 has the version - is that correct?

Hello. Did the newtownsoft.dll issue get resolved in 7.3.4. I upgraded a site and i still have the problem.

cathal connolly
@Les, no, that work is scheduled for 7.4.0
cathal connolly Monday, November 17, 2014 5:37 PM (link)
Les Cantin
Thanks Cathal. I talked to the PowerDNN guys. They indicated the NewtonSoft DLL is not installed on their servers so DNN loads its own version. Can you confirm?

@Les we load newtownsoft as we use it for serialization (the issue mentioned earlier was that some hosts have a version installed in the GAC which overrides DNN's version)
