DNN Platform (open-source) 9.12.0 is the latest stable version of the DNN CMS. It was officially released on June 22, 2023. For details on changes and fixes, please see the latest release notes. DNN's newest version completely removes Telerik when a clean install is performed or when an upgrade where Telerik had previously been removed is performed. If your site still has Telerik and you are performing an upgrade, the upgrade process will guide you through options to keep or remove Telerik. The team also added enhanced security where the system will notify an admin when an unauthorized user requests a password reset, added a new GA4 connector as well as various performance improvements, bug fixes, and maintenance pieces. Top contributors to this release include Engage employees - DNN MVP Brian Dukes and Cregg Hancock.
DNN Platform is an open-sourced (free) CMS and is solely maintained through the dedication of developers. For help or to get started with a DNN-based website, please reach out to an Engage Software expert - Dave Gambino, firstname.lastname@example.org.

As always, DNN Platform is open-source and available as a free download from DNN Software. For Evoq Content Basic, Evoq Content or Evoq Engage licensed versions, please reach out to the sales team at DNN Software at email@example.com.

Last week, DNN's Shaun Walker announced the release of the latest version of DNN (formerly DotNetNuke), DNN 7.3, on his blog at the DNN Software website. He shared this was a major release, which was focused on performance and stability. The release covered a whopping 450 issues,
The highlight of the release is that DNN 7.3 offers faster page response time. If you're not paying attention to your site's speed timings, you should be. With the ever-continuing adoption of mobile as the preferred point of interaction, speed matters more than ever.
In addition, administrators will be happy to find a more responsive user experience, especially on larger scale web sites (which was good news to us, since that's Engage's sweet spot).
As with previous versions of DNN, along with other community contributors, Engage team members (and DNN MVPs), Brian Dukes and Oliver Hine, contributed directly to the release. We're very proud of their efforts and are happy to be part of such a strong community.
The free version, DNN Platform 7.3, is now available for download at DNN Software. For Evoq Content or Evoq Content Enterprise licensed versions, please contact me directly at jstone(at)engagesoftware.com.
