Subtext 2.1.1 Available Via the Web Platform Installer

0 comments suggest edit

subtext200x200One of the cool products that I’m personally excited about announced at Mix is the updated Web Platform Installer.

I’m not going to lie. Part of the reason I’m excited about it is that it includes the latest version Subtext! The Web PI tool is a really nice way of installing and trying out various free and open source applications out there. It installs everything you need to get Subtext up and running on your local machine.

All you have to do is go to the Web App Gallery, find an application and click the Install button and it will install the application (if you have Web PI already installed). If you don’t have Web PI installed, it will prompt you to install Web PI and then install the app.

In this screenshot, you can see the dependencies needed to run Subtext are already listed.


Subtext 2.1.1 is a very minor update to Subtext with a few bug fixes. The major fix is that the “forgot password” feature now works properly.

This was a little last minute surprise for the Subtext team as I literally put the required install package together in the last minutes leading up to Mix. In the meanwhile, major refactoring work is ongoing in our subversion repository. For example, the trunk now uses a custom Routing implementation (not yet built on ASP.NET MVC, but moving that way) Feel free to join in and help fix bugs and test. :)

    How can I install it on my shared hosting server?
    I just need to get the package, unzip it and upload it via FTP.
    Can I do "remote" installations via PI?

    Now, considering the risk to be annoying, when will the MVC-rewritten version be released? :P
