DotNetNuke 3.2.1 and 4.0.1 Released

DotNetNuke 3.2.1 and 4.0.1 have just been released. These are both stabilisation releases with a number of key bug fixes.

The 3.2.1 release contains an updated version of the Microsoft MemberRole component which addresses some Medium Trust issues on ASP.NET 2.0.

A variety of defect corrections and new versions of the FreeTextBox rich text editor control are also included.

The DotNetNuke Installation Guide.pdf in the documentation download has also nearly doubled in size to 63 pages. This addresses some of the areas of documentation weakness raised in various threads in the forums.

Upon quickly reading the new documentation, it is a vast improvement and should clarify a lot of the questions that have been raised in the forums.

In particular they address the following issues which have been raised:

If you are using version 3.2.1 with ASP.NET 2.0 and your website hosting provider is running under Medium Trust, you need to make some additional adjustments to your web.config file, you can read about these on page 18 of the new documentation.

If you are using version 4.0.1 and your website hosting provider is running under Medium Trust you can find details regarding this on page 35 of the new documentation. - The documentation states to use the development.config file instead of the release.config file if you are running under Medium Trust. (The development.config file is not included in the download file, it's included in the folder download file.)

I haven't tested installing DNN4.0.1 in a Medium Trust environment yet, so I can not confirm the process.

I will be testing DNN 4.0.1 over the next month or so and will provide further information when I have fully tested the setup on a live website.

You can download the latest releases from:

DotNetNuke Upgrade and installation video tutorials are also included in Issue 4 of DNN Creative Magazine.
