Sitefinity 3.0 RC2 released

The final release candidate before the official Sitefinity 3.0 release is now available for download. RC2 adds a lot to the previous Sitefinity 3.0 releases (including RC1) and is a good sign for what's to come in the official release (due in mid May). Among the new features in RC2 are:

  • Multilingual support
  • Support for Medium Trust Environment
  • Web Farm and Web Garden support
  • Page Caching
  • Lists Module
  • Blogs Module
  • Content Reuse Model
  • GUI Improvements feature
Obviously, medium trust and multilingual support are huge enhancements in this release, especially for people that want to run Sitefinity on shared hosting. The blogs module has also been included in this release, bringing an important piece of the puzzle to the new CMS for those interested in using it as a community or personal website.

Also, unlike my promise for multiple photo galleries after the first Sitefinity 3.0 release candidate, I do expect to deliver at least one photo gallery of the new RC for those that don't have the time to download and install. For everyone else, grab the new bits and let us know what you think.
