BlogEngine.NET 1.1 released

Almost three months have passed since the first release of BlogEngine.NET 1.0 and five months since the first public alpha. The interest has been overwhelming and the feedback immense. Because of this, we wanted to get the next version out the door as fast as possible with all the bug fixes and many feature requests from the community.

The community

The BlogEngine.NET community has really grown and the discussion board is buzzing every day. I’ve never seen such an active community before – a community that helps each other, release patches and features, create themes and doing the translations.

All the bugs you’ve found, the features you’ve requested and the patches you’ve uploaded are the main reason why we are able to release so soon. You’ve done a tremendous amount of work and we are very grateful. Thank you very much for making BlogEngine.NET a better blog engine.

    Henrik, I find the time because I want to find the time Smile
    I was in Italy for 17 days, but now I'm back again. It was just a short vacation. Besides, the kind folks at BlogEngine kept working while I was gone.
