Umbraco 7.2.2 and 6.2.5 released

We're happy to anounce the return of regular Umbraco patch releases, starting with v7.2.2 today.

You may have noticed that we're a bit late on our usual regular release cycle due to the winter holidays, some security fixing and a focus on other projects in the HQ. But fear not, as of today you can expect a new patch release every 4 weeks like we've been doing in the past.

In today's 7.2.2 release we've put some exciting little gems like progress bars when you're uploading media files, a few bug fixes for the grid and fixes for mandatory field validation. You can see the full list of changes on the release page. Other than that you will now also be able to upgrade to MVC5 and WebApi2 by following the Microsoft upgrade guides. We still default to the older versions for now as there's a few breaking changes but if you're willing to rebuild your project we are not in your way of upgrading any longer: happy days!

As for v6, we fixed a few things in 6.2.5 that were broken in recent releases of v6 to make sure that the latest version is as functional as it can be. This also marks the end of regular releases for Umbraco 6, from now on it will only receive security updates if a severe security problem gets discovered.

Go download your Umbraco 7.2.2 or 6.2.5, enjoy!
