U4-4862 - Umbraco 6.2 doesn`t allow "-" in document type aliases

Created by Timo 12 May 2014, 13:22:57 Updated by Timo 14 May 2014, 14:27:49

Starting from Umbraco 6.2 document types with a hyphen are no longer allowed.

Is this a bug or a feature that was introduced with Umbraco 6.2?

Feature, I'd say, as we are more aggressive with aliases, in order for them to also be valid C# / JavaScript items. So "News-Item" cannot be a valid alias anymore.

Ok, sounds reasonable. We`ll update our packages to accommodate the new format.
