Orchard 1.8.1 was released today! I have been eager for this release due to a number of annoying bugs in 1.8. Overall I thought 1.8 was a great step for Orchard but I have a couple sites waiting to upgrade due to these bugs.
Most notably for me, the following bugs have been fixed:
Caching errors – This would cause problems with form validation – messages would not be displayed on postback because Orchard was serving up a cached version. The flag to tell Orchard not to show a cached version on postback is now working again.
Lists are now working properly – the issues with paging and disappearing lists in the Admin area should now be resolved.
Media gallery issues – images not displaying due to characters and some other small points have been fixed.
Overall 1.8.1 doesn’t bring a lot of new functionality but it cleans up some of the great features of 1.8. It feels mostly like a bug patch, but that makes sense for a minor release.
You can see the full release report and bug fix list below. Did any of these bugs cause issues for you?
