Mailbag: A Mention of DNN 7.3
So I'm halfway through my three month sabbatical from blogging and I get an email from my good friend, Shaun Walker. For those that don't know Shaun, he's the CTO and co-founder for DNN Corp. You know, the guy that started DotNetNuke. To make a long story short, Shaun wanted to remind me that the DNN community recently released 7.3 which focuses on platform performance. Shaun thought it would be a good idea to mention the release to readers here at CMS Report. Given that this was the man that identified wayback that the future of content management systems was in cloud, mobile and social media...it is difficult for me to ignore such requests.
However, I'm not fully giving up my three-month break from blogging. Instead, I'll do what any good blogger in my circumstances would do...steal from Shaun's own blog post about DNN 7.3. It's the only way I know how to keep DNN fans happy while my summer plans stay intact. The following is in Shaun's own words:
I am very excited to announce that the latest version of DNN was officially released today. This is a major release focused primarily on platform performance and stability. With almost 450 issues closed in this iteration, this release represents a substantial amount of value for customers and platform users.
The DNN 7.3 release improves the run-time characteristics of the platform in a variety of ways. End users will notice faster page response time and administrators will appreciate a more responsive user experience, especially on larger scale web sites. Server processing has been optimized and resource consumption has been dramatically reduced, resulting in greater scalability and improved site density in all infrastructure environments. More information about the performance improvements in DNN 7.3 is available in Bruce Chapman's blog.
So there you have it, I've managed to mention DNN 7.3 without writing much about it myself. I think Shaun now owes me a beer the next time we meet at CMS Expo. If I'm lucky, John Coonen (CMS Expo co-founder) now owes me a beer for mentioning his conference. Seriously though, if it has been awhile since you've had a hard look at DNN...do yourself a favor and check out what this platform can do for you and your business. No beer required for this piece of advice.
