Oqtane 4.0.6 Released
By: Shaun Walker
The 4.0.6 release is primarily focused on stabilization. This includes a variety of user experience improvements and a new Search capability which can be utilized in all Admin Dashboard areas for enhanced administration.
This release includes 34 pull requests by 5 different contributors, pushing the total number of project commits all-time to 4238. The Oqtane framework continues to evolve at a rapid pace to meet the needs of .NET developers. The 4.0.6 release is available for download on Github and is running in production at https://www.oqtane.org, https://www.blazorcms.net, and https://www.blazorkit.net.
With .NET 8 scheduled for public release next month, the 4.0.6 release will be the last Oqtane release based on .NET 7 (STS). The next release will be based on .NET 8 (LTS) and from a semantic versioning perspective, will be version 5.0. That being said, we do not expect any breaking changes in the Oqtane framework itself... the major version increment is solely to communicate to users that the underlying .NET dependencies have gone through a generational upgrade.
