Release Notes

Features all the resolved issues from our uComponents v4.1.0 release.

Upgrading from v5.0 beta
If you are already using the v5.0 beta, then the only change in the stable release is a patch to the installer that will update your RenderTemplate control macros. There are no other changes since the beta release.

What's new in uComponents v5.0?

  • Compiles against Umbraco 4.8.0
  • The best parts of uComponents have been moved into the Umbraco 4.8.0 core directly:
  • New components
    • Macro Engines
      • Static File Macro Engine
      • XSLT Macro Engine
  • Separation of components into logical assemblies;
    • uComponents.Controls.dll
    • uComponents.Core.dll
    • uComponents.DataTypes.dll
    • uComponents.Installer.dll
    • uComponents.MacroEngines.dll
    • uComponents.NotFoundHandlers.dll
    • uComponents.UI.dll
    • uComponents.XsltExtensions.dll

Umbraco compatibility

This release is compatible with Umbraco 4.8.0 (and above). For previous versions, please use uComponents v3.1.2 with Umbraco 4.5.2+ and uComponents v4.1.0 with Umbraco 4.7.1+
(To reiterate: this release does not work with Umbraco 4.7.2 and earlier versions.)

Legacy and retirement

There are a number of components that are due for retirement. Reasons for this can be due to: lack of support from the development team; functionality has been superseded by another component; the component itself is deemed feature complete; or that the component has been migrated to the Umbraco core.

The following components have been retired to the uComponents.Legacy.dll:
In order to maintain backwards compatibility, the uComponents.Legacy.dll assembly will be shipped with uComponents as default for the foreseeable future. If you do not require any of the legacy components, you can safely delete the uComponents.Legacy.dll file from your /bin folder.
