Main packages
This release information lists updated main package versions for the Episerver platform. When a release is built, other dependent packages also may be bumped to new versions, although they contain no publicly visible changes. This is done to avoid dependency errors. When you upgrade, NuGet alerts you to upgrade related packages to the required versions. For Commerce, it is important to ensure that you are running the same version of CMS and Commerce, both in the front-end and back-end applications.

Episerver CMS Core

New features:

    • CMS-10653: Support for getting geolocation from a request header / CDN
      Some Cloud and CDN providers, such as Cloudflare, provide Geolocation functionality by adding the visitor's Country Code to the request headers. Our geolocation functionality can now use this information to provide country and continent information, in the case where no Geolocation provider is configured. See Configuring personalization in the CMS Developer Guide for details on how to configure the name of the header.
    • CMS-10661: The old MaxMind GeolocationProvider is obsoleted
      The old EPiServer.Personalization.Providers.MaxMind.GeolocationProvider in EPiServer.ApplicationModules has been marked as obsolete in code. It will continue to work as before, but we recommend switching to an updated GeoIP database.
      See Henrik Nyström's blog post and Configuring personalization in the CMS Developer Guide.
    • CMS-10457: Session-less visitor groups
      Customers can now use all built-in Episerver visitor groups without requiring session state on the server side.
      See Session handling in visitor group criteria in the CMS Developer Guide.

  • EPiServer.Personalization.MaxMindGeolocation 1.0.0
    See Henrik Nyström's blog post for more information on this package.
