Umbraco 7.0.1

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
