New release soon

BlogEngine.NET 1.2 has been downloaded almost 20.000 times since its release September 30th. That’s a lot of downloads and it shows that the 1.2 release is very popular. We’re very proud of that. When that is said, we acknowledge that there where some bugs in that release. Nothing major, but a lot of minor stuff. A lot of those issues have been fixed as of this writing.

Christmas is coming soon and that usually mean we all spend a lot of time with family and friends and going to parties all of December. Because the next version has some major new features, it also takes a lot of time to develop. That doesn’t go well with the very limited time we have during December.

Instead, we have decided to release a minor version of BlogEngine.NET later this November called 1.2.5 which is a kind of a service release. It will have support for all the new languages – we now have 31. It will also contain all the bug fixes found since the 1.2 release. It will also have a few new features such as mobile rendering, 100% Mono plug ‘n play support, new events for extension writers and a richer Windows Live Writer experience. The performance will also be a little better.

Other fixes, tweaks and features going into the 1.2.5 release is listed at CodePlex.

    You just need to fire up Windows Live Writer and follow the instructions when you set it up. There has been Windows Live Writer support since the 1.0 release.

    Like many users, I have a custom theme running on my site. Will any changes to custom themes be necessary when upgrading to 1.2.5 or are all changes outside the /themes/ directory?
