Sitecore releases 6.6.0 Update-6 (rev. 130529)

I am happy to announce that Sitecore today has released 6.6.0 Update-6 (rev. 130529).

Sitecore 6.6.0 Update-6 is a regular maintenance update which contains a few improvements and addresses a number of issues.

The main highlights in this update are:
  • After upgrading to 6.6 Update-5, custom user profile properties could be lost.
  • Security vulnerability fixes to make Sitecore more secure.
  • LinkProvider fixes, including improvements and fixes to the logic for generating cross-site links.
  • Executive Insight Dashboard fixes.
  • New item versions were sometimes created when a user performed certain operations.
  • Ability to use a different logic for partial cache clearing operations for certain caches.
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 the update.
Happy coding!
