Breaking changes between 4.11.x and 6.0.0
- A list of breaking changes is available in the issue tracker
- The most important one: you cannot set a property's value without doing an explicit Save() any more. So: doc.getProperty("pageTitle").Value = "Hello World"; does not do a save to the database, you have to cal doc.Save(); after that.
- There are database changes in the 6.0.0 release, click for more information on their nature
- The code editor has been greatly improved, but is sometimes problematic in Internet Explorer 9 and lower. Previously it was just disabled for IE and we recommend you disable it in umbracoSettings.config (scriptDisableEditor) if you have problems working with it.
