DotNetNuke 5.4 adds support for .NET Framework 4 and document management

Why so quick to produce a new release? The desire to support .NET Framework 4 for starters!

DotNetNuke 5.3 was only released at the end of March. That update included improved content administration through the addition of page level workflow, a new ribbon bar control panel and improved access to page editing. But they had more work they needed to do. That included ensuring the DotNetNuke platform supported Microsoft's latest platform updates with .NET Framework 4 As you probably know, DotNetNuke is built on ASP.NET, so it was important to ensure it would work with both .NET Framework 3.5 and .NET Framework 4.

Support for .NET Framework 4 isn't the only thing new in 5.4. Another major feature introduced to the professional and elite editions is document management. Prior to 5.4 DotNetNuke did not have any strong document management functionality. But according to Shawn Walker, co-founder of DotNetNuke, there were several third party modules available.

So DNN took a look at what was available on their Snowcovered Marketplace and decided to obtain the IP for one of those solutions. The one they chose came from Xepient and was called OpenDocumentLibrary.

The commercial editions have document management capabilities such as:

  • WebDAV
  • Check in / Check out, Versioning, Rollback
  • Automatic synchronization with existing document libraries
  • Workflow for documents
  • Creation of document folders and permissions on folders
  • Usage reporting

The Commercial editions picked up document management, but the Community also got a few things as well:

  • Folksonomy
  • Ribbon Bar Control Panel
  • Telerik RAD Editor

Not even a month after the release of DotNetNuke 5.3, DotNetNuke 5.4 is released.
