Umbraco 6.1.4 Released

Thursday, August 22, 2013 by Sebastiaan Janssen


Good day, dear website visitor, wherever you are!

Today markes the day of a spectacular new release of Umbraco, the one we named 6.1.4. It has bug fixes (surprise!) and is generally more awesome than the previous version. 

Shannon and Morten have jumped on the perfomance bandwagon and they've been improving perfomance left and right on their Freedom Fridays. Yeah, to some people performance tuning is actually a hobby.. go figure.
Other than that we've fixed some annoying bugs and are once again thankful for the lovely pull requests we've had from the community, keep them coming! 

A little bonus for the NuGet lovers out there: If you are using the Publish-feature in Visual Studio you should be happy to know that we now have a build script included that makes sure to copy the umbraco and umbraco_client folders (which are not included in the Visual Studio solution) to the deploy package or file system.

So, make sure to jump on the brand new umbraco.tv and start learning what this v6 thing is all about so you can use this latest release more effectively!

Make sure to download 6.1.4 beforehand so you can follow along with the videos.

    Problem after update 6.1.3 to 6.1.4 appeared.

    User.getAllByLoginName("admin") started to throw an error.

    I installed fresh version and it is not allowing to get into Admin Login. It seems something is missed.

    @Shaishav It sounds like your connection string is wrong, make sure to check it in the web.config or run /install again to set it properly.

    @Biagio: There are so many different preferences people have for setting up their VS solution, it's near impossible to recommend the best way.
    Personally, I'd say: File > New Project > New MVC (or WebForms) project.
    Then install Umbraco using NuGet.

    @Biagio Nuget is the way to go. You can get started (from scratch) within a few clicks.
