An update to the EPiServer Add-on Store

When we released EPiServer 7.1 a few months back it was the first release that we delivered through the Add-on Store. For many sites the upgrade was smooth, but unfortunately there were some cases where the upgrade didn’t succeed immediately.

Since one of our main goals is to simplify product upgrades and making it easy to manage add-ons we’ve put a lot of effort in investigating the scenarios where the upgrade to 7.1 wasn’t successful and finding solutions to those problems.

Today we’re making new versions of both the Add-on Store and the EPiServer UI available. The releases don’t contain any new functionality, but fixes around the actual upgrade. The update is a two-step process, first you install a new version of the Add-on Store and then you upgrade the UI to the latest version. The upgrade is done completely inside the Add-on Store. When done, the product will have the version number 7.1.2.

This is what the update will look like inside the Add-on Store given that you’re currently on version 7.0:

When you have installed version 7.0.1 you will be able to update to 7.1.2:

 

The process is the same when you’re on 7.1, with the difference being that you first install version 7.1.1.

To summarize: With this release we’re aiming to make the upgrade processes in the Add-on Store more stable and we have also improved how the updates are presented inside the Add-on Store.

Nice! Any chance we can have a list of fixes in the new UI release? =)

The fix for bugs #98481 and/or #98043: is this solving when the files in the /modulesbin folder are read-only because of TFS' behaviour to make all files read-only until they are Checked out for edit?
