DotNetNuke Version 1.0.10


The original Version of DotNetNuke was derived from the IBuySpyPortal Solution - a demo solution, provided by the Microsoft team.

We translated the original source code from English to German, changed and added a bunch of functions to adopt DotnetNuke to our needs.

DotNetNuke Version 2

DotNetNuke 2 was completely rewritten using providers for data access and other functionality. Unfortunately it was still available only in english - so we had to translate again. We did a partly translation without adoption of admin functions, that worked with quite fairly and we realized a few portals incuding our own web site.

Due to the great leaks we decided not to publish our translations and as DNN 3 finally came out, there is no further need for a localization of version 2.

DotNetNuke Version 3

DotNetNuke 3 was annouced as the first multi-language version. This is not completely true, as the core team only provided static translation - this enabled portals in any language, but only one language per portal. And currently there are still some items not covered by localization: lists and module names. Anyway it is a big step ahead.

The Core team decided to provide 2 languages within the standard daployment: English and German. As we found, that their german translation could be improved, we decided to work it over and rewrote all the texts, trying to provide an adequate german wording for most of the technical terms, so even novice users of the internet can handle the system. We are proud, that the core team decided to imtegrate our translation within the standard deployment.

In DotNetNuke 3.0.13, the German Translation has been surprisingly removed from the standard deployment and has to be installed like any other lnaguage seperately. You can always download the current Language Pack from this site.

Currently DNN 3 is developed simultaneously with DNN 4, having the same functions. This shall end after release 3.3.x You can always migrate to the current DNN 4 release without mayor problems or risk of data loss.

DotNetNuke Version 4

The same day, Microsoft published .Net Framework 2.0 and ASP.Net 2.0, DotNetNuke 4.0 was released. DotNetnuke 4.0 is an 1:1 port of DotNetNuke 3.2 and is developed simultaneously. Versions are siimilar as follows:

DotNetNuke 3.2.x ~ DotNetNuke 4.0.x
DotNetNuke 3.3.x ~ DotNetNuke 4.1.x

Modules, Providers and Skins for DotNetNuke 3 are usually working under DotNetNuke 4 without lomitation (but not vice versa).

DotNetNuke 3.3/4.3 introduced a new, extensible membership provider and secure file system. At Version 3.3.7, DotNetNuke 3 developement was terminated.

DotNetNuke release 4.4 focused on performce increasement.

DotNetNuke 4.5 included AJAX.Net support into the application framework.
