Subtext 1.5.2 Minor Bugfix Release

0 comments suggest edit

Subtext Logo The Subtext team is currently furiously working to prepare the Subtext 1.9 Daedelus release for your blogging enjoyment. Subtext 1.9 will run on ASP.NET 2.0 in Medium trust and contain a few new goodies, though those goodies have been kept to a minimum as the goal was to create a straight port to ASP.NET 2.0. The release date has not been set since my day job and another minor side project has been keeping me busy. My hope is to release somewhere around the first or second week of August.

In the meanwhile, we found the need to respond to some minor bugs in the last release. Thus today we release Subtext 1.5.2 which still runs on ASP.NET 1.1. This is a very minor release, so probably not necessary unless you are affected by one of the bugs listed below.

Probably the most annoying bug was one that caused problems when attempting to create a post using the web-based admin tool. This was due to a misconfiguration on my part of our ReverseDOS configuration file.

It was this misconfiguration that inspired my “stroke of pure genius” suggestion to the creator of ReverseDOS (though methinks he is a bit strong on the compliment). ;)

Here are the release notes.

                  subtext_Config.BlogGroup in the import

    Will you be posting upgrade instructions? I'm looking for information from 1.5.1 to 1.5.2. Do I just overwrite everything but the web.config?
    Also, what is the best way to secure the site in terms of the Install directory?

    Excellent work, Phil. I really like SubText a lot. The upgrade was so simple and painless. I just followed the old instructions on the SubText site which worked just fine for me.
    I am looking forward very much to the next release. A job well done.
    Many, many thanks.
