DNN Platform and Evoq 9.2 Release Notes

I am pleased to announce the release of 9.2. This release took longer than usual, as we were busy reorganizing ourselves past DNN's acquisition back in August 2017. Nevertheless, 9.2 is packed with lots of goodness. Let's get started.

Updates in DNN Platform 9.2

DNN Prompt

DNN Platform comes with a brand new command line interface to perform administrative tasks. Read more about DNN Prompt here. DNN Prompt is extensible as well, meaning you can add your own commands as well. Look out for a future blog on this topic.

Updated Page Management

The page management experience has been greatly enhanced using tree view navigation. You can drag & drop !)

Introducing Connectors (along with Azure Storage Connector)

Connectors were first introduced in Evoq to have a single place to manage external connections. Evoq integrates with several services such as Dropbox, Box, Mailchimp, Zendesk, etc., which all use one common interface to define and configure connection information. Just like anything else in DNN, Connectors were built with extensibility in mind. We have now moved the base Connectors framework into DNN Platform. Along with that, we also made the Azure Storage Connector availble in Platform as well. Look out for a future blog on this topic.

@Ash Prasad - thanks.

Perhaps you should include a link to the actual release? https://github.com/dnnsoftware/Dnn.Platform/releases/tag/v9.2.0.

Also, there should be Release Notes in the actual release on GitHub. That's where most will expect it, though it is nice to have it in a blog too. :)

Lastly, what are the chances of standardizing these package names? They seem to be all over the place. Why is are the build number ranges a part of the package names?

By the way, the format of this blog is a bit hard to digest easily.

Not trying to be negative at all - just a community member with suggestions for improvement. :)

Is there missing content in this blog? There's a handful of headers with no content beneath them.

Also, what happens to the people that are currently using 51Degrees when they upgrade? Do they simply lose the functionality, or is that only for new installations?

I have similar questions for nearly all of these features. What is the impact of each for new and upgraded instances of DNN? Unfortunately, this blog post only leaves me with questions. :(

"Introducing connectors"
Where are they documented?
What's the difference between connectors and folder providers?
Will folder providers be discontinued?

Was Evoq (9.2) fixed to support folder providers?

On 20 Jun 2017 I've created a Jira ticket" "Unable to add / configure Folder Providers (Folder Types) in Evoq 9.1+"
https://dnntracker.atlassian.net/browse/DNN-9937

It was simply closed as "Won't Fix" with the unacceptable "users will need to install Telerik and then DAM to access this".
Relly? So, thinking it was a misunderstanding I've create a new Jira ticket. It was simply deleted and never answered.

DNN Corp never replied to my questions.



I've created question in the forum: http://www.dnnsoftware.com/forums/forumid/108/threadid/538313/scope/posts
It was replied by Sebastian, not DNN Corp, and it was just a "I guess it will be fixed"

I never got a reply nor explanation from DNN Corp.

Will this comment be also deleted?

Blog needs some more work. I am working on it.. I will be posting a couple of more blogs. This is as fast as I am able to type today :)

Thanks, Ash. There are a number of other interesting questions posed by Horacio and David too.

Is there any way for Evoq customers to find details of the improvements made to that product? The platform issue tracker is publicly available and let everyone see all of the issues that were taken care of, but the Evoq tracker is private so all we get is "Overall Stabilization."

Hi everyone,

I am having trouble finding the Liquid Content Localization functionality. I am not able to create Content Item's in multiple languages.

I have a new site running 9.2 with English (primary), Spanish, Russian, and Chinese enabled. I am able to create Content Items in English, but if I try to create Content Items in any of the other languages, it doesn't not allow me to.

Is there any documentation on how to do this? If not, can someone please explain how to manage multilingual Liquid Content?

Thanks,
Joe

So... Here it goes again, because there are no reply in the forums, no reply in jira tickets, and nobody from DNN Corp says anything.

"Introducing connectors"
Where are they documented?
What's the difference between connectors and folder providers?
Will folder providers be discontinued?

Was Evoq (9.2) fixed to support folder providers?

Thanks
