Just released: 5.3.1

When I got hoem today and opened my mail using webmail, I’ve foudn out Sitecore has released the new version. It contains soem surprising new features such as a updated login screen, implementation of RoleMembership, etc. The new version does feel a lot better. It seems to be a a bit faster. Even the installer is faster :)! The whole package is more compact, the web.config more readible. Less ‘development feature’ are in the build and even the databases seem to be cleaned up by default.

Too bad I just found out that the language issue in the client, when you delete the ‘en’-language in the client, still occurs. Menu’s still become empty. That’s a pity. It really is.

But to finish this post with a good feeling, take a look at this cool tool:

So Jakob, Ole and the whole test, installer and support crew, thank you very much for this release, from 1 to 10, I’ll award you guys with another 8… Wonder what the socre would be when the language issue was resolved too… 😉

  1. Alex,

    You keep suprising me. I haven’t even found the time myself to test this product, and I know that you too are extremely busy. And yet, you have tested it.
    What about a few more sceen-dumps, e.g. the logon screen and something about RoleMembership?

  2. Yeah what is the RoleMembership all about, is it implementation of the role provider model in ASP.NET 2.0? Can’t find anything about it in the release note nor the SDN 🙁

  3. Nice update indeed.
    I notice this is not really a “patch” for 5.3. It’s quite hard to update 5.3 to 5.3.1. I really like new login screen but I am still missing “Remember me” checkbox that was in Sitecore 4.
    Why there is no “Remember me” cookie?
    Did anyone tried to delete home -node, yet? Has it been fixed?
