Great work guys, there are a good number of items on the list that I am glad to see are resolved. Could anyone explain a practical use case for the the last enhancement on the list. "enhancement to allow separate modules to use the same module definition name"? I am curious!

It says "added ability to add new Folder Provider" instead of "FIXED ability to add new Folder Provider".
'Ability to add new Folder Provider' is something that users can do since DNN 6.0.0.

Still numerous upgrade issues with 7.2.2 that have not been addressed (see forums, etc). Best to wait for 7.3 and hope.
