Good Advice NOTE: As with any release, we recommend you perform a complete file and database backup before performing any upgrade on a production website and that you first conduct a trial upgrade on a staging version of the site. Following these guidelines will ensure that you are able to recover should any unforeseen problems arise during the upgrade process.

Release Notes • Simplified Installer • The first thing you will notice is that the installer has been updated. Not only have we updated the look and feel, but we also simplified the overall install process. You shouldn’t have to click through a series of screens in order to just get your website running. With the 7.0 installer we have taken an approach that allows for the application to be installed quickly, but also provides you with the ability to configure advanced features if you wish. In the 7.0 CTP you will be able to experience the new install process and hopefully save yourself sometime along the way. • Web API Service Framework • In DotNetNuke 6.2 we introduced the Service Framework based on Microsoft MVC. As Shaun Walker mentioned in his blog a few months ago, we had the need to convert the Service Framework from MVC to Web API. This has been completed for the 7.0 CTP and is ready for testing. Scott Schlesier will have a series of blogs over the next few days that will provide you with everything you need to know about updating your services for 7.0. • Default.css Overhaul • The Default CSS in DotNetNuke has been completely overhauled. Ryan Martinez, UI/UX Designer for DotNetNuke Corp, does a great job explaining the reasoning behind these changes and what it means for designers. This is an area where we need a lot of feedback. If you are skin designer, module developer or just have a site using a third-party skin, we want to hear from you! Check out Ryan’s Blog to get the full details on the Default.css Facelift. • New Developer Skin • The skin that you will see in the 7.0 CTP is our new developer and admin skin. This is a very lightweight skin that has been optimized for performance so that we can provide administrators with the best experience possible. Don’t be surprised if you run into few bugs along the way as we are still working out a few issues with the skin.
