This version is a version with serious changes inside, but not so much at the outside.
Fellow FAQ team member Torsten
Weggen used this module to get exercise coding in DAL2: the complete data layer of FAQ has been
rewritten to make full use of the PetaPoco DAL2 options. Because of that, you will need at least DNN 7.0.6, since we
wanted to link FAQ with a nice stable DAL2-DNN release.
I implemented the new DNNtc MSBuild options. DNNtc
MSBuild will complete automate the creation of the .dnn manifest file and create install and source packages from
attributes in the C# code.
So internally FAQ has changed a lot, at the outside you will find a few bug fixes.
We encourage you all to give this new version a test before updating
your production environment. And be sure to make a backup before installing this
new release. Better be safe than sorry! FAQs 05.01.00 can be
Release notes DNN FAQs 05.01.00
FAQs 05.01.00 will work for any DNN version 7.0.6 and up.
Full details on the changes can be found in great detail at
- First category created could not have child categories
- Some localization issues fixed
- First category in clean install could not have child categories
- Completely rewritten data layer, using DAL2.
What is next?
I think we will use this module to get experienced in Github. Up until now, all source code of FAQs
is stored at TFS from CodePlex. This worked well, but did not enable people, other than the FAQ team, to work on the
module. Putting the source on Github should make this possible. And since Github is new for us as well, this is a nice
opportunity to get real experience in working with Github ourselves!
