Umbraco 7.0.1

Friday, December 13, 2013 by Per Ploug

More than 3.500 installs of v7 has been made since the release (3628 to be exact!) and we've received a lot of great feedback from the brave early adopters. We've listened and have been polishing a lot of the UI, adding missing translation keys, fixing issues around preview and issues regarding the rich text editor."

In addtion we've among other things been working on these issues: 

The biggest issue since 7.0.0 has been with deleting items from the tree, which was caused by inconsistent configuration of IIS allowing HTTP-DELETE verbs. All delete methods now use http-post instead for compatibility.

Moving appsettings and connectionstrings to seperate configuration files has also proved to be a challenge on several setups, so this has been reverted, see upgrade notes below.

In regards to security, we have fully implemented AngularJS's best practices for protecting against jsonp and XSRF vulnerabilities, as well as fixing an issue with user credentials getting logged.

Other then that we have been polishing alot of the UI, adding missing translation keys here and there, fixing a couple of issues around preview, and finally fixing issues regarding the rich text editor.

Complete list of issues fixed can be found on the issue tracker

Recommended upgrade

It is highly recommended that you upgrade from 7.0.0 to 7.0.1 - there are no breaking changes, but irons out alot of those little annoyances.

As always, you can find the release on under releases

Upgrade notes

To upgrade from 7.0.0 to 7.0.1 you will need to perform these tasks manually, the rest is handled by the installer:

  • Remove all uGoLive dlls from /bin These are not compatible with V7
  • Move appSettings/connectionStrings back to web.config If you are on 7.0.0 you should migrate these settings into the web.config instead of having them in seperate files in /config/
  • Delete all files in ~/App_Data/TEMP/Razor/* Related to issues with razor macros

The general upgrade guide applies for V7 upgrades as well, find it here

    Looking good. I'm very excited about v7 - the backoffice was in dire need of a modernisation - both from a technical point of view, but also from a UX point of view. Now just bring on the ImageCropper in v 7.1 and I can actually start using it :)

    I just upgraded from 7.0 to 7.0.1 - noticed that my media picker isn't showing folders any more... all my media items are categorized into folders (built-in folder media type), so the net effect of this is that I can't see any media with the media picker. Can anyone else confirm this?

    Something old was cached. Shift-Reload didn't clear it, but in Chrome "Empty Cache and Hard Reload" did. Hope this helps someone else!

    I have just finished updating to 7.0.1, but the styleselect (Formats) in rich text editor still don't work correctly for me, is this a reported bug or do I have some problem in settings? I see the button "Formats", but when I click it, instead of showing the select style dialog in the editor, it renders it outside the current view (so if I scroll the page down, I can see it and it works).

    @jirka - try clearing the browser cache, we havnt changed the format picker, but people have reported that clearing the cache helps

    I am a newbie using Umbraco and MVC but been coding WebForms for years. Umbraco 7 looks very nice and I will learn the techs and build the sites and apps based on it.

    Anyway, I followed the upgrade instructions step by step (7.0 > 7.0.1) but this only thing I got was a blank screen and a lot of 400 and 500 errors in the developer tools. I then copy and replaced all folders (leaving my web.config and global.asax) and the site started to respond but I had no admin when trying to login. I cleared the cookies but still no success. I then cleared the localStorage and everyting started to work. Thats my 50 cent for others having problems upgrading.
