4.11.3 - Update

Well, I have now also cleared the Developer > Packages area, and also the Media, and Member areas, which are in working order for all basic tasks.

There were mostly casing changes, but there are a couple of important points to report - both on the Developer > Packages section:

  • During the package uninstall dialog, the dynamically created checkboxes lose state, and this needed fixing. This is a well known mono issue and I have applied the same fix for it in three different places - a bit of repetition, I know. These will be merged at some point. Probably with the 6.0 port.
  • The packages callback from returns an all lower-case url, and I changed the casing of the umbraco\developer\Packages\ folder the 'packages'. I generally try to avoid file system changes. But in this case, it was needed.

The packages area functionality will be a difficult to get working - it looks like this area will be most sensitive to platform specific changes such as casing, the directory separator, and also the issue of the casing of xml nodes names (which I have yet to address).

    Nice, keep up the great work you are doing! I just purchased a RaspberryPi to try it out on (on Raspbian / Mono) - will let you know how it goes :-)
