Centralpoint Update 8.9.50


Date of Update: Monday, July 6, 2020  
Feature Summary
Admin > Properties > Logging This feature is enabled only when the site needs to optimize performance for recording clicks. We recommend that "Admin > Properties > Stats > Clicks" is set to "Disabled" when Logging is enabled. We also recommend that all hardcoded URLs to click.aspx, InsertClick CpScripts, and ExtClickTracking CpScripts are completely removed from the website. However, we have found that some projects contain a significant amount of hardcoded URLs through the click.aspx page. Therefore, when Logging is enabled, we have disabled database writes from click.aspx if it is still active. This means links pointing to click.aspx will still redirect to the proper page. Additionally, the InsertClick & ExtClickTracking CpScripts will not be functional when Logging is enabled.
.NET Framework 4.8 & C# 7.3 Centralpoint will be updated to utilize the .NET Framework 4.8 early next month with the release of version 8.10.0. It is a highly compatible, in-place update to the .NET Framework 4 which delivers better performance and security. The .NET Framework 4.8 must be installed on the web server manually before Centralpoint version 8.10.0 will install. Install the framework anytime after installing and syncing this update. The installation of this framework may create "aspnet_client" folders in the Master/Root and WebSites/cpweb_/Root folders on the server. These directories should be manually deleted to prevent problems with future updates and syncs. My Module developers may also need to install the .NET Framework 4.8 Developer Pack locally. Version 8.10.0 will also update the Roslyn compilers in each application's Bin folder and will update the web.config files to utilize the latest compilers. https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet-framework/net48
