Closed, Fixed and tested


When requesting an individual or list of LanguageBranch, the instances are returned directly from the cache without any copy being created. As the LanguageBranch class is not immutable, this means that any changes affect other users, whether it saved or even valid. Even though most properties are immutable, ID, SortIndex and ACL are not.

Breaking changes

  • LanguageBranch now implements IReadOnly, and all instances retrieved from the LanguageBranchRepository are now returned as read-only. To get an editable LanguageBranch instance, call CreateWritableClone(). New instances are created as writable. Most properties now have set methods, and some constructors specifically made to populate all properties have been obsoleted.
  • LanguageBranch.URLSegment now returns the LanguageID if not set to a custom value. CurrentUrlSegment is therefore no longer needed and has been obsoleted.
