Internal hotfix builds

  • Internal hotfix builds
  • Hi all,

    Sitefinity team has a new policy to release incremental hotfix builds on a more regular basis. The builds will be available in the internal builds section of your Telerik accounts and will help you address critical issues without waiting for a major release or even a service pack. We recommend upgrading to the hotfix builds only if you experience the particular problems that were fixed in some of these builds.

    The internal hotfix builds have passed our fully automated test suite - which includes thousands of functional, integration, unit and performance tests. The actual bug fixes have also passed strict manual quality assurance and performance tests. These builds have not passed our full manual regression testing cycle that we do before each official release. These releases will not include breaking API changes, database changes and high-regression potential changes or fixes. Upgrade from these builds to the consecutive official release is fully supported. 

    The bug fix builds can be installed by any customer having a license for the particular official version that precedes them - that's the same policy we have for the service packs.

    The downloads are activated only if you have first downloaded the major official version that precedes them. For example, internal hot fix builds for 6.3 are available if you have downloaded 6.3.

    Best regards, 
    Sitefinity Team.

  • Sitefinity 6.3.5013 Version Notes

    What's fixed:

    • Improved startup time - reducing the CPU time by 25% compared to 6.3 by removing the runtime compilation of the inline editing’s Razor templates at startup. Instead those templates are compiled build time.
    • Mobile App builder- compatibility with new Icenium Authentication.
    • Dashboard- fixed errors in Sitefinity's log when News Module is disabled.

    Please note that this is incremental upgrade so it contains the fixes from the last week as well.

  • Sitefinity 6.3.5026 Version Notes
    What's fixed

    Module Builder
    • Performance optimizations in dynamic modules - decreased the number of db requests in the backend list screens up to 5 times. The optimizations include:
                - Caching of some commonly used meta information , that was previously retrieved from db for each content item record
                - Optimizing the security permission checks based on the fact the dynamic modules don’t have granular permissions – e.g. we check the permissions just once for all records for the current user now, not for every record (before)
                 -Retrieving the information about the published and locked records is done with one single db query for all shown records on the screen instead of issuing a new query for each single persistent item
                 -Skipping a lot of db queries when the site is not in multilingual mode – e.g. we are not checking which languages are published for each content item

    LDAP
    • Fix Ldap Query to support ToUpper and ToLower
    Sitefinity DAM
    • Skip request validation for Sitefinity DAM services in CustomRequestValidator.Sitefinity Desktop Application is trying to post html content (long text fields, e.g. Content), so request should always be valid.

  • Sitefinity 7.0.5101 Version Notes
    What's fixed

    SiteSync:

    • Multisite synchronization issues for for deleted items coming from monolingual sites when others are multilingual (FP)
    • Incorrect prefix for migrated taxonomies in multisite migration.
    • Product migration fails if we migrate the item 2 times.
    • Cannot sync an attribute which is applied to specific product type.
    • In pending items dialog only items from the default provider are filtered by taxonomy.
    • Fixed creating two Default Calendars after migration.
    • Pending Items Dialog Selective sync throws an exception randomly.

    MVC:

    • Helper methods defined in razor views (in App_Code folder) do not work properly

    Dashboard:

    • Awaiting approval filter is not showing items.
    • Status filtering is not working properly.

    Libraries:

    • Clicking on Reorder button gets all the images under the top most parent library

    Localization

    • Fix for upgrade of page localization strategy migration.

    Content location:

    • Content location for content items is missing after upgrade (until app restart).

    Connector for Marketo:

    • Calls for jQuery and JSON2 are no longer made in the front-end pages if they are already loaded.
    • Important: This change might cause a JavaScript error if the used munchkin relies on jQuery. This can be avoided by switching to a different munchkin or loading jQuery in the front-end pages' head tag.

    Blogs:

    • Loading of the back-end blogs grid is slow when there are many blog posts assigned to a single blog.
