Sitecore releases 6.4.1 (rev. 101221)

Today, Sitecore has released 6.4.1 (rev. 101221), our second update for CMS 6.4.

Sitecore 6.4.1 is a regular maintenance update. The version number has been changed from 6.4.0 to 6.4.1 because of some database schema changes in the EventQueue table.

The update contains a bunch of nice fixes and improvements in several areas of the product, including
  • Scaling and multi-instance setups
  • Multi-browser support
  • The Page Editor
  • The Rich Text Editor
But check out the full release notes - there's a ton of good stuff in this update.

Everything is already available on SDN, including:
  • The release notes which describes the improvements and fixes in this update
  • The update page which contains instructions for updating existing Sitecore solutions to 6.4.1

Scaling Guide
To make SQL Server Replication work correctly, it's important that SQL Server replication is configured to replicate data in the EventQueue table after data from other tables. We are going to release an updated SQL Server Replication Guide with instructions for doing so (it's a simple step, but quite important).

Technical Preview
Oh, and as I'm sure you all know by now, Sitecore CMS 6.4 graduated from Technical Preview to General Availability on December 17th when a number of 6.4 compatible modules and additional documentation was published.


  • When to expect a 6.4.x recommended version (now 6.2) to use for production environments?

  • Good question! I feel that it deserves a slightly longer answer, so I've written a new blog post about it:

    And thank you for the note about the broken link. I've fixed it.
