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 websites (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, is now available for download at DNN Software. For Evoq Content or Evoq Content Enterprise licensed versions, please contact me directly through the contact us form.
