WebMatrix refresh released.


We’ve just published a minor refresh to WebMatrix, which you can download and use from the Web Platform Installer today.

We did this to fix some of the top customer issues that have been reported since we launched in January.

If you have any more problems or bugs with WebMatrix, please let us know! Smile

Details

Some of the fixes that we’ve implemented in this refresh are:

  • Customer report: Ctrl+C/X/V breaks once international characters are entered when using the United States-International keyboard layout with WebMatrix
  • Exception error when template installer link is broken
  • Web Deploy hard-coded fallback MySqlDump.exe path will make MySQL app operations fail by default when WebPI starts using new version of MySQL
  • Web Deploy requiring MySQL installed locally when installing application for use with remote MySQL server
  • Bin deployment of SQL CE binaries broken in WebMatrix because Web Deploy copies only .dlls and additional .manifest file is required
  • Add "spotlight=true" to Find Web Hosting URL
  • Broken xml file for spanish resource file of template
  • IIS Express doesn’t run when My Documents is on a root drive
  • For non-local documents, introduce a new environment variable that WebMatrix sets and IISExpress reads to determine if it needs to start polling
  • Redirection.config fallback path is incorrect
  • For non-local documents, introduce a new environment variable that WebMatrix sets and IISExpress reads to determine if it needs to start polling.
  • Add a regkey to switch default opening of PHP files in UTF-8 vs. local code page

    really thanks to my customers faster than your web site can do the web matrix

    why this language "We’ve just published a minor refresh to WebMatrix"?

    the fact is that it's an *update* not a *refresh*

    the meaning itself shows that "refresh" cannot be used in this context.

    I have spent the last 3 days trying to install it and get wordpress up and running with no success. The database never lets me connect. What's worse is the websitespark site. 90% of the time one or more sections won't load so I can't even get any help or leave a comment.

    So far – worst software EVER!

    I like WebMatrix for editing my php. I do have some feature requests though. Is there a place where we can share them?

  5. Sean says:

    So, I've been installing WebMatrix via the WPI for a little over 3.5 hours now. I sure hope it's worth the wait!

  6. Annette says:

    How do I change the install location for WebMatrix?  It doesn't give an option of where to install the application.

    After installing the Refresh WebMatrix still claims a newer version exists and keep popping up a message about it! I've tried to uninstall it and install fresh one – same annoying behaviour!
