In March of this year I made some
blog posts about my intentions with FAQ and I have (or I should say,
we have, since Torsten
Weggen joined the FAQ team) reached a serious new target: a complete conversion
to C# and some major enhancements. The result: FAQ 05.00.00, which available for
Release notes DNN FAQs 05.00.00

changes can be found in detail at

What is next?
During testing in the DNN release tracker, some minor issues were marked.Thank
you, Sebastian, for noting these down. We will create an update to resolve most
of not all of these smaller issues. Next, we will implement the new form UX/UI pattern of DNN6. This change will
require DNN 6.1.x as minimum level, so start upgrading to the latest version if
you have not done so.
The FAQ team would like to thank everyone who contributed to this release. It
is nice to experience positive feedback on the work that we, DNN FAQ team volunteers,
are carrying out.
