I just successfully upgraded this website from DotNetNuke version 05.04.04, to version 05.05.00. Fortunately, I didn’t run into any hiccups at all. Everything just upgraded as expected.
The upgrade view show all successes, and the Event Log didn’t show any upgrade related errors. Whew! (Yes. Make sure you check your Event Log as a Host user upon upgrading.)
Should you upgrade? Absolutely! There are at least a few must-have features:
There are a large number of other stabilization updates as well. What are you waiting for?
DISCLAIMER: As with any other release, and with any other software, 3rd party software that is integrated with DNN can affect your upgrade abilities. Back-up your site and database diligently, and test the upgrade in an offline site first.
