I am updating my CopyURI GUI Extension for Tridion 2013 sp1. I use Yoav's suggestions in his 8 steps article to add the XSD files to Visual Studio and validate against them. The SDL Live Content (Login required) contains a nice working example. My question is this - do I need to update my refs to Tridion 2013 in the config? Would it be better? Or, can I keep them as 2011 and it is OK? The changes I discovered are:

         <ext:itemicons />

And also

    <dependencies />
    <editurls />
  • I don't understand the question. What references? In general, though, I can say that there is no backwards compatibility for the configuration XML so it needs to always conform to the schema of the Tridion version you have installed. May 7 '14 at 12:50
  • The namespace refs in the Tridion example are from 2009 - I guess that is correct? And, I'm not sure the 2011Extensions.Commands.CopyUri in my config is correct or should be changed

    The namespace hasn't changed, so 2009 is correct. As for your configuration I cannot say without seeing it - but you can always check the CME editor configuration for "inspiration" if you are in doubt :) Very little has changed over the years so I'm not sure you even need to change anything. Do you get errors? May 8 '14 at 9:00
  • No errors, but always curious is I'm doing it the right. :)

  • Well I can't really tell. But unless it's listed in the upgrade documentation, you shouldn't have to change anything at all. May 9 '14 at 13:45

No cosmetic or serious changes are needed when upgrading to Tridion 2013 sp1. The APIs and config files in Tridion continue to be very backwards-compatible friendly :)
