Releasing 2sxc 9.40 w/Razor Blade

Apps targetting 2sxc 9.40+ can use Razor Blade 1.1 as it's always included. We also implemented 7 other great enhancements & 7 bugfixes.

Primary Features / Improvements

  1. Include Razor Blade 1.1 with distribution
  2. Changed how toolbars can be added and how they hover, so in future it won't require the sc-element class #1685 (will be documented in future)
  3. Ensure that all images are auto-rotated by image-resizer #1684
  4. Improve signature of REST API to get metadata #1686 (still a hidden feature, not public yet)
  5. Added an overload of Edit.Toolbar(...) which accepts IEntity objects #1687
  6. Added insights-logging for search activity #1693
  7. File manager now respects write-permissions set in DNN, and will disable edit, rename, delete, upload in folders to which the user has no write permissions #1657
  8. All 2sxc WebAPIs now have JSON pre-defined as the output format, so it's easier to call them by pasting the URL into the browser (which wasn't possible before, because it always wanted to format as XML, which usually failed) #1693


  1. Sometimes Search-Index hat errors if the App-Cache had not been initialized #1689
  2. The inpage-toolbar sometimes failed when the title of the item had an apostrophe and the toolbar should have also provided the delete button #1688
  3. If a sql-datasource returned data with the same column-name twice, it threw an error. Now the second identical column will be ignored #1661
  4. In content-mode, only show content-types which also have public views; hide types without views or with views that have been disabled #1614
  5. Description/Notes of an input-field is wysiwyg again #1669
  6. quickE misplaced items when moving #1672
  7. File manager correctly uses the root-path if needed #1657

Breaking Changes & Risks

  1. The change that WebAPIs are JSON by default is technically a breaking change. Previously it defaulted to the standard which was XML. This never actually worked, so we assume nobody based their work on it, but in case someone runs into issues, see #1693
  2. To solve #1689 we had to make some minor changes to the deep insides of data-loading in EAV. We believe it's robust, but if you're running a critical system, we recommend you wait a few days till this release has proven itself in the wild.
