Sitefinity 7.3 Internal Builds

  • Sitefinity 7.3 Internal Builds
  • This thread contains release notes for Sitefinity 7.3 version internal builds. These are the distributions built automatically from our source repository and include all latest fixes (new features are usually not included). If you have experienced any problem with the current official distributions there is a possibility that the issue has already been addressed in the latest internal build.

    The builds are 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 7.3 are available if you have downloaded 7.3.
