Tonight's Presenter: David Poindexter

  • Most of the information we go through are coming from this blog post that David put out regarding testing.
  • He mentioned that DNN 9.11 is the first full telerik completely gone release. Once you've removed Telerik and then upgraded to DNN 9.11, then telerik is fully, completely gone!
  • New DNN 9.11 File Manager, the Resource Manager - This is a completely new and improved Resource Manager, built from the ground up. This solution was developed based on valuable DNN community feedback after the release of the first stop-gap Resource Manager solution.
  • There are some default settings and configuration changes such as SSL first settings, Registration none settings
  • David described that there are three scenarios for upgrade... depending on whether you have Telerik previously installed but NOT in use, or IN USE, or whether it's not installed at all...
  • There were several security updates, some of which applied to authentication, have been updated
  • The upgrade step now has a screen to tell you the Security related information regarding Telerik removal as though running the removal tool and steps
  • David suggested that users should first remove telerik and then do the upgrade to DNN 9.11 as that's the easier process and more straight forward in the screens and information.
  • CKEditor might need some review, especially if you have installed special plugins
  • David stressed again, that the main focus here is complete removal of the telerik control DLL... even unused, the DLL creates issues on a running instance, so everyone needs to get on the move for complete removal!
  • DNN 9.11 IS EXTREMELY FAST ! There were some additional benefits to the DLL and Petapoco element updates that went into this release. The result, by some estimations, is around 80% speed improvement in DNN!
