Sitecore releases 6.6.0 Update-7 (rev. 131211)

I am happy to announce that Sitecore today has released 6.6.0 Update-7 (rev. 131211).

Sitecore 6.6.0 Update-7 is a regular maintenance update which contains a few improvements and addresses a number of issues.

The main highlights in this update are:
  • To improve the performance in solutions with a large number of items, versions, or languages, you can now configure the system so it does not populate database caches during indexing. In addition, the logic for determining whether media items are file based has been reworked to improve performance in these solutions.
  • The Sitecore authentication provider did not support session time-outs.
  • A performance issue has been fixed that affected virtual users when using the Sitecore clients.
  • Some issues related to dynamic image scaling have been fixed where the system did not resize the image to the correct dimensions after you changed the image size of an image in the Rich Text Editor or in the properties dialog box for an image field.
  • A considerable number of issues related to the Content Editor have been fixed, including:
    • The item:write and language:write permissions were not always respected.
    • The logic for checking whether you had permissions to remove a version was not consistent across the entire system.
    • When a user performed certain operations, new item versions were sometimes unnecessarily created.
  • A number of issues related to the Sitecore serialization event handlers have been fixed.
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!
