Dynamicweb 9.0

Release date: 30th of August 2016

Dynamicweb 9 is the biggest release in many years, maybe only passed by the 2005 version when we switched from ASP to .NET, so this release is a big overhaul of our offering containing these things.

To upgrade from Dynamcweb 8 to Dynamicweb 9 your current Dynamicweb version should be 8.8.1.12 or later. If it isn't, upgrade to the 8.8.1.12  in the standard manner before proceeding.
