Known Potential Breaking Changes

  • Removed ~500 deprecated APIs
    • Upgrade any 3rd party extensions before upgrading DNN
    • Recompile custom extensions against DNN 9, and review deprecation warnings
  • jQuery upgraded from 1.9.1 to 3.2.1 (with jQuery Migrate 3)
  • jQuery UI upgraded from 1.11.3 to 1.12.1
  • SharpZipLib upgraded
    • DNN has been using a very old version of the SharpZipLib library for zipping and unzipping archive files, because the newer versions had a major breaking change, with the library being renamed in a way where both versions cannot be supported at the same time. This new version is now being used, so modules which referenced the older version will break upon upgrading DNN. The recommendation is to either use the APIs that DNN exposes (e.g. DotNetNuke.Services.FileSystem.FileManager.UnzipFile), or to use the APIs available in .NET 4.5, under the (System.IO.Compression namespace)[]
  • Newtonsoft.Json upgraded from version 7 to 10
    • A binding redirect has been put in place, so components compiled against older (or newer) versions of Newtonsoft.Json should still operate. However, the details of the JSON serialization and deserialization may be different, which could cause components to break if they have assumptions on those details of the JSON format

Further details on the release are available via the release notes post on the DNN blog
