    Great news!!!

    I noticed that you sneaked in a version between me downloading it on Friday and Today it went from version 1212 to 1214, I just thought I would mention that for the early birds like me that downloaded it before the announcement :)

    One question is the Upgrade instructions under My Client .Net up to date including changes made in 3.5?

    Hi guys,

    Great work! Can I ask - i notice there is some performance counter settings in the web.config. What do these do and how can we see the results of what they are reporting on?

    Is there any more detail available about the new caching capabilities and does it support subsitution yet?

    Have played a bit with and so far I like some of the fixes especially getting rid of the old radcontrols.

    I found the Nolics install with a Professional license key in the download. What are the terms of use for this?

    I'm having a lot of fun trying to get the RadEditor in the Generic Content Areas to work properly.  Please see this thread:

    In addition to the RadEditor stripping out my Javascript <script> tags it also has funky Icons.  The icons don't line up properly.  If I switch it to EnableEmbeddedSkins, the Insert Image and Insert File icons are still out of alignment.  I've been searching for a fix in the forums but haven't come across anything yet.

    Hello Clyde,

    Sitefinity includes an OEM license for the Nolics.NET engine and designers. This means that you are licensed to use Nolics in building custom Sitefinity components such as custom modules.

    Take a look at FAQ, 2005
