A Note about the Version Numbers
Our goal is to keep Evoq versions in synch with the DNN Platform version. However, the open source DNN Platform skipped the version 9.3 and went to 9.3.1. This was primarily due to a glitch in the software build process. Evoq did not follow Platform, and called this release as version 9.3.
Just to confirm the Evoq version is 9.3, which is built on top of DNN Platform 9.3.1.
Known Potential Breaking Changes
If you currently use any 3rd party or in-house Persona Bar extensions which utilize the export bundle from the Admin Experience, they will need to be updated after upgrading to v9.3.1. Please see https://www.dnnsoftware.com/community-blog/cid/156674/upgrading-persona-bar-components-for-dnn-93 for more information on this change.
Changes since unreleased version of DNN Platform 9.3.0
Fixed version issue with AdminExperience, CKEditor, FolderProviders, and JWT. These extensions were incorrectly versioned in the 9.3.0 release. This caused the upgrade process for v9.2.2 sites to skip upgrading those extensions. This resulted in an upgrade that appeared successful but was incomplete.

  • Updated all React.Common packages to React 16 and created initial storyboards.
