Quick update: 6.1.1 is here

Monday, June 3, 2013 by Sebastiaan Janssen

While for the most part the 6.1.0 release a few days ago went very well, some of you did run into some oddities that we hadn't seen in testing so far:

  • A few of you have seen duplicate nodes appear in your content tree, this problem showed up only if you had multiple upload fields on a document type and one or more of them was holding an image
  • Right-clicking on an item in the Media section would only allow you to refresh it, but create, delete, move and were gone (ouch!)
  • Updating template inheritance in the backoffice didn't save the inheritance correctly
  • The Examine dashboard section we promised, wasn't actually in the Dashboard.config file, so you had to enable it manually

So, we immediataly worked on fixes for those issues, sorry for the inconvenience.

6.1.1 is now available for download, enjoy!

    Could I update 4.11.9 to 6.1.1 directly?

  2. Gravatar ImageAndreas Says:

    Yes, just follow the general upgrade guide:

    Just a quick note: If you get a YSOD after upgrading with the message "At least one object must implement IComparable", you have hit this bug: http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-2315
    The workaround is simply to upgrade to a fixed version of the Client Dependency Framework, as linked in the comments. This will be fixed in 6.1.2.

    I got some problems with a fresh install of Umbraco 6.1.1.

    In the backoffice i got some "Umbraco is not defined" JS errors.
    I traced it down to the ajax calls, anybody have a fix for this?

    I have several 6.0.x installs running on the same machine?!

    @Jacob would be easier if you reported details on the issue tracker: http://issues.umbraco.org

    Make sure to follow the upgrade guides: http://our.umbraco.org/documentation/Installation/Upgrading/

    Sounds like you have some browser cache going on maybe or you forgot to overwrite /umbraco and /umbraco_client with new files.

    The nuget package is not compatible with ASP.Net MVC 4 (Version: 4.0.30506.0). any help?

  7. Gravatar ImageSebastiaan Janssen Says:

    @Karlo Make sure to leave a message at the forum with details. We use MVC4 so that should just work. http://our.umbraco.org/

    Where is Umbraco 6.1.1 ? It looks like it was deleted in codeplex.

  9. Gravatar ImageAllan Says:

    Yes, where is 6.1.1 now?

    I upgraded a website to 6.1.1, from 6.0.5 (even without plugins, 6.1.1 is very, very buggy. I upgraded in the first place to avoid the bugs in 6.0.5)

    Am I now supposed to downgrade it to 6.0.6?

    Which probably means manual transfer of files to 6.0.6 - Courier does not seem to be working too well from my very limited testing.

    I manually transferred all my content, datatypes, and so on from 6.0.5 to 6.1.1, because Courier did not work.

    So transferring all my content manually from 6.1.1 to 6.0.6, for improved stability, is quite a task to undertake...

    @Paolo We're moving to Github and away from CodePlex, so the releases are being moved to our.umbraco.org. I've updated the link, you can find 6.1.1 here: http://our.umbraco.org/contribute/releases/611

    @Allan We welcome all feedback and if you can please tell us in the issue tracker what exactly the problems are that you are experiencing we can see what's going on. We're aware of a few small bugs but if you find more of them we really would love to know: http://issues.umbraco.org

    As detailed in the upgrade documentation, you should always create a backup of your site before doing any upgrades, that way you can just use the old version if the upgrade proves to be problematic for you.

    @Allan, what kind of problems are you experiencing (please share details)? I'm using 6.1.1 for a new production website I'm building (IIS 7.5, ms sql server). I'm using MVC mode, SurfaceController, MVC Forms, Views in razor. I have to do a multilingual site (for now only one language), I'll post if I get problems for this but so far everything looks perfectly working.

    Could i update 4.9.0 to 6.1.1?

  13. Gravatar ImageConnie Says:

    What about upgrading from 4.7.0 directly to 6.1.1? Can it be done in one upgrade? or must I upgrade to 4.10 first?
