Sitecore releases 6.4.1 Update-1 (rev. 110324)

Yesterday, Sitecore released 6.4.1 Update-1 (rev. 110324), our 3rd update since the 6.4 Technical Preview.

Sitecore 6.4.1 Update-1 is a regular maintenance update with a lot of good stuff.

Highlights in this update:
  • The most imporant set of fixes and improvements in this update are related to the Media Library and the media API.
  • The setup.exe would fail on non-English operating systems (except from Danish and Japanese Windows installations).
  • Also, this update contains a number of fixes and improvements that were first released in 6.3.1.
As always, there's a number of additional fixes and improvements in this update, so be sure to check out the full release notes.

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

Updated Scaling Guide
As previously mentioned, we published a new version of the Scaling Guide for CMS 6.3 and 6.4 earlier this month.

If you're planning to implement multi-server setups with Sitecore CMS 6.3 or 6.4, you should make sure to grab a copy of the revised documentation:

SQL Server Replication
And to repeat myself some more: If you are setting up SQL Server Replication, make sure that to check out the updated version of the SQL Server Replication Guide which was published when 6.4.1 was released:

The updated documentation contains instructions for configuring SQL Server replication to replicate data in the EventQueue table after data from other tables (it's a simple step, but quite important).
