    Meeting notes:

    • 00:00 - Status. Suggestion: we shouldn't delete columns in migrations (for backwards compatibility between deployments), just remove them from the Create() method.
    • 22:57 - Discussion on how security vulnerabilities should be announced/communicated. There is a new security vulnerability that is not disclosed yet, Sébastien is working on the patch.
    • 28:05 - Demo by Siyamand Ayubi: collaboration and ticketing system for Orchard. Content types can be extended with a content part that enables users to create tickets related to a content item with several other settings. Tickets can be interacted with in several ways, for example by assigning them to groups or users. The module has strong integration with built-in Orchard features (e.g. Tokens, Workflows, Emails, Projections). You can check out the intro website for the module and clone the source code.
    • 48:57 - Demo by Sipke: improvements and additions to the IDeliverable.SlideShows module. Many new settings/customization features were added, like extensible slideshow animation providers. This module is now available for licensing.
    • 1:06:15 - Announcement by Lombiq: DotNest is now integrated into the Azure marketplace through a so-called Resource Provider. This allows you to create Orchard sites on DotNest using your Azure subscription.
  • DotNest Orchard sites now available in the Azure Marketplace

    It wasn't exactly easy to do, but now DotNest is even more integrated into Microsoft Azure: you can created DotNest Orchard sites as an Azure App Service, from the Azure Marketplace!

  • Collecting Orchard usage telemetry with Azure Application Insights - module released

    You can't base decisions on assumptions. What you can't measure you can't manage. Familiar? Of course, and what you want to do with your software is specifically what's hinted: measure how people use it. Azure Application Insights is a tool for this, being an application telemetry service. Now we created an Orchard module for it for easy integration!

  • Git Publishing Orchard To Windows Azure

    Windows Azure has a really nice feature that allows you to push deployments from a public Git repository on GitHub or Codeplex as well as push deployments from a local Git repository on your development PC. In the near future, Azure will support private Git repositories as well. You can easily use Git Publishing with Azure and an Orchard CMS Website with the addition of 1 file that needs to be added to your Orchard Website!
