Lightning StormWe just had a short lived but crazy loud lightning storm. I was up late working on Subtext because I couldn’t sleep when I started hearing the loud clap of thunder. The eerie part is that between the thunder claps, it was relatively silent outside until the next thunder clap.

Subtext 1.5 Nautilus R and R Edition Released!

subtext suggest edit

IMPORTANT UPDATE: There was a security bug in Subtext 1.5 for multiblog setups that will allow the admin of one blog to login to another blog. If you are only using a single blog setup, you have nothing to worry about. For multiblog setups, please upgrade to Subtext 1.5.1. The change is a single line change in Subtext.Framework.dll so if you have already upgraded to Subtext 1.5, you can simply copy over the old Subtext.Framework.dll file with the new one instead of copying every file from the installation package. Sorry for the the inconvenience. Download Subtext 1.5.1.
