Changes to low-level data provider for the temporary file system. Can no longer be used to access files outside its root. Provides GetTempFile and GetTempFolder methods to create temporary files/folders which are erased during site restart.
Customizable package list during first time installation, allowing to create a minimal site with only required packages.
The next version will be released in December, 2019.
ASP.NET 4 support is being phased out, expected to be dropped end of 2019.
Long Term Changes
YetaWF already offers replacable packages so customized features (including core services) can be implemented. We're moving towards an even more plug-and-play type pattern (like the new website startup, console startup, web api startup (web service) packages).
Removal of jQuery is a long term goal. All components and modules now use TypeScript without jQuery (however Kendo UI is jQuery based).
Remove use of bower - This continues to be used only by Telerik's Kendo UI.
Page load time/performance is always of high priority.
