Ask me more frequently: a new release for FAQ: 05.00.01
In December of last year we released version 5 of de FAQ module. In the
blog post about this version, I announced that we would migrate the version
to DNN 6.x and implement the new form UX/UI pattern of DNN6. That time has come.
We, the FAQ team (Torsten
Weggen and myself ) have done so! We have created a new release of the FAQ module
(version 05.00.01) that has some nice enhancements, which include full SQL
Azure compatibility, next to the DNN 6 form pattern.

Full details on the changes can be found in great detail in the
issue list on CodePlex.
