Dear Sitefinity fans,
We are happy to present an even more production-ready
Sitefinity release for your evaluation. In this Release
Candidate, we have included numerous enhancements in the Modules functionality,
UI improvements and fixed most pressing issues.
You may not notice many visible changes from Beta 3 release as we have
focused on improving the underlying module architecture. Also, we did listen to
your feedback to fix reported bugs and made final adjustments to our CSS
Again, we would like to ask you to share your impressions on
the stability, correctness and performance of the Release Candidate, so we can
iron out the remaining issues. The real world is much richer than our test
environment and we would appreciate any feedback that can help us make the
product better. After 7 months of hard work, we're almost there, folks! And it
is going to be a release that we can be really proud of.
Thanks to everybody making this release happen and for
providing us with a valuable feedback!
For the most enthusiastic, download the RC from here.
