New Community Website

Ordinarily, you'd be at the right spot, but we've recently launched a brand new community website... For the community, by the community.

Yay... Take Me to the Community!

The Community Blog is a personal opinion of community members and by no means the official standpoint of DNN Corp or DNN Platform. This is a place to express personal thoughts about DNNPlatform, the community and its ecosystem.

jQuery, NewtonSoft, etc. updated in DNN Platform 9.2

DNN depends on some very important 3rd party components such as NewtonSoft, jQuery, etc.. It's important for us to keep them up to date to ensure a) we take advantage of the new capabilities, b) get the bug fixes, c) ensure we are on their most secure versions. 

We don't necessarily do these updates with every release, rather when it makes sense. We felt 9.2 was the best time to do it and have it out of the way. Here they are:

jQuery updated to 3.2.1

jQuery has been updated from 1.9.1 (as of 9.1.1) to 3.2.1. Refer to this jira to get more details.

jQuery UI has been updated from 1.11.3 (as of 9.1.1) to 1.12.1. Refer to this jira to get more details.

NewtonSoft updated to 10.0.3

Refer to this jira to get more details.

Sharpziplib updated to

Refer to this jira to get more details. Known issue is discussed in this jira to get more details.

Client Dependency updated to 1.9.3

Refer to this jira to get more details.

Removed over 500 deprecated APIs

Removed 51 Degrees

No changes in Telerik

Our goal is to completely remove Telerik from DNN and Evoq. We were not able to accomplish that in this release. We will do so in a future release.

Will 9.2 break my site upon upgrade

Hard to say, just like any other upgrade, you must run upgrades in a test environment first. Be prepared to identify breakage and have a plan to resolve them.

Could this blog be updated to let people know exactly what the impact of each item will be on their site? In previous years, this is what these kind of blog posts always contained. What kind of impact and expectation will each item have for us in new installations and upgrades? What about module vendors? Do they need to do anything specific? We're just kind of left out the cold here to figure things out individually.
