DNN 7.1.2 Released

I am pleased to announce that DNN Platform 7.1.2 has been released. The primary focus with every maintenance release is to improve the stability and performance of the DNN Platform.

With the release of DNN 7.1, we re-organized our product and engineering teams to better enable us to focus on improving the core platform.  With the 7.1.1 release we focused on just getting through all of the changes resulting from the reorganization as well as dealing with our new source control system and issue tracking system. With these changes complete, the team was able to spend more time in 7.1.2 focusing on the quality of the release and addressing some longstanding issues

New Release: dnnCHAT v01.00.00 now available

Earlier this year I started on a project to learn how to use SignalR, I had reasons to do so for my full time job (non-DNN related) but considering my DNN experience over the past 11 years I figured that learning how to use SignalR with DNN would be my fastest way to get myself up to speed. So I started working on a Chat module. Originally that module was called SignalRChat, and was available on codeplex, but ultimately I decided that name kind of sucked, so it needed to be something else.

In comes the DNN Chat module project, there was a Chat module for DNN long ago, but the last official release of it was in 2008, and while there was a Beta in 2010, it hadn't seen any development and work in years. So I approached DNNCorp about taking over the DNN Chat project and replacing it with my newly developed module, at the same time, going from "DNN Chat" to "dnnCHAT".

The one constant in life is that there are no constants in life; Unless of course you count Pi, or Planck’s constant or the speed of light; but I digress. Everything around us is in a constant state of change. For many people, life changes can be very stressful.  In fact, the mental health profession has long regarded the most stressful times in a persons life is when they are undergoing dramatic change. This is not necessarily a bad thing, since many of these stressful events are also some of most joyful events in our lives.  Leaving home to go to college, getting married, the birth of a child and starting a new job are all stressful events that often lead to great reward and satisfaction.

This summer has seen DNN undergo a number of significant changes.  We changed our branding, completely rebuilt the DNN website, launched Evoq in the Cloud, and released DNN 7.1. These are not the only changes that have occurred.  Even as we have been making outward facing changes to our products and our business, we have also been making changes under the covers to improve the operation of our product and engineering teams and to improve our ability to interact with the community.

Wanted: volunteers!

October 18 and 19 marks the dates of the next DNNCon (previously known as Day of DotNetNuke). This event will be held in West Palm Beach, Florida, which may be risky business, being that it is still inside the hurricane season. However, this year’s hurricanes have not been happening so far, so let’s hope that will also be true for October!

This Open Source Thing is Cool. How Can I Help? An op-ed.

I can think of two reasons why you’d be a DNN Platform addict. Either you think it’s an awesome tool to make some money or you think you can make some money using this. I’m kidding. There is a second group. Those that itch to work on something bigger than they would otherwise be able to work on, together with some of the sharpest programming minds on the planet. Obviously I’m not excluding you’re here for both reasons. But the focus of this post is on the second group. Those that have been bitten by the Open Source bug. Continue Reading »
