Version 5.0 of Efficion's Articles Module for DNN Coming Soon

We've been hard at work on version 5.0 of Efficion's Articles module. The new version features the following changes:

  • New underlying technologies: Built in C# instead of VB and is now a compiled DLL rather than a WSP project.
  • Open Source and shared development: The Articles module will have the MIT license to allow anyone to use it for anything for free. We'll be posting the code on GitHub and DNN's forge and encouraging others to contribute.
  • New Data Access Model: Uses PetaPoco / DAL2 for most data access providing improved performance and flexibility and resulting in much cleaner and simpler code.
  • Improve templates: we've cleaned up templates to make the code cleaner, eliminate all layout tables, and allow a lot more flexibility in design using only CSS.
  • DNN Compatibility: We're targeting DNN 7 and 8 with this release and removing all outdated calls to old code
  • Improve install and upgrade experience: We've updated our manifests and install files for an improved experience.
  • Lots More: There's are lots of addition improvements coming in this release. We'll provide more detail at release time.

Articles Module Free Again

We've decided to stop selling the Articles module and just give it away for free like we did in the beginning. The download links will be available for everyone once we finish up 4.3. We also have plans to move the module into the DNNForge once we get further along in making the sweeping improvements we're planning. Stayed tuned! Comments (1)

Version 4.3 Coming Soon

Jan 17, 2014 We've spent the last day working on improving the DNN 6-7 compatibility of the module and finishing up some of the updates that we've made since 4.2.7 was release long ago. 4.3 should be out soon and is hopefully the start of a much more active development path for Articles.

Resuming Active Development of the Articles module soon

We know it's been far too long since we last updated the Articles module. We want to assure you that we haven't forgotten about the module and are planning on resuming active development of the module in the coming weeks.

We got behind on several projects and are finally getting back on top of our workload. We definitely plan or bringing it up to speed with the latest 6.x enhancements including Taxonomy/Folksonomy, the new manifest, and integration with the new Journal API. We also have plans to simplify the architecture a bit.

Once we do get it a bit more up to date, we plan on either putting it on codeplex/dnnforge for free or selling it more actively through the DNN Store.

We apologize for the exceedingly long delay in releasing a new version, hopefully we can keep development more active from here on. Comments (0)
