Release Notes


  • This package is only for DNN 7.0 and higher.
  • Please backup your database before installing this release. The install script makes several non-reversible changes to the tables related to attachments.
  • A big thanks to the many GitHub users who contributed to this release. It's great to see more people getting involved in the project.
  • This release changes the attachment system considerably. This most important change to note is that the attachment system is no longer used to insert images into posts. For image insertion, it is recommended that you use the functionality provided by the various full text editor providers available for DNN. For more information about this change, please see GitHub issue #61.
  • If you start seeing double notifications sent, you may still have legacy AF 4.0 tasks running in your DNN Schedule. Removing those old tasks will resolve the issue.
  • Just a reminder that the official home for this project is now on GitHub:
