DotNetNuke 4.9.1 and 5.0.0 Released

I am not sure who all noticed but late yesterday DotNetNuke versions 4.9.1 and 5.0.0 were released yesterday, and for those that have already tried to download you will notice that the downloads are no longer coming from SourceForge but are actually being handled via CodePlex, which to me is a great thing for the visibility of the project.

These two new releases are a big milestone for the project 4.9.1 is a new stablization release, and is most likely rumored to be the last of the 4.x releases.  However, there is a cool new dashboard feature that I will be blogging about here in the near future that comes with 4.9.1.

DotNetNuke 5.0.0 as everyone is already well aware of if the next big thing in DotNetNuke history, granular security permissions, ability to delegate administration activities and more are some of the key selling points with DotNetNuke 5.0.  With DotNetNuke 5.0 going through 7 internal betas and two external release candidates, I have a farily good feeling about its stability.

For those looking to upgrade or install these new versions.  DotNetNuke 5.0 versions of my install and upgrade guides have been posted, individuals working with 4.9.1 can use the same documents to prepare!
