We're happy to announce the Release Candidate (RC) for BlogEngine.NET 2.6.
The RC can be downloaded here. If you are upgrading from a previous version, upgrade instructions are available.
Here is a mostly complete list of new features. This list may be updated for the final release to include other features which made it into version 2.6.
Below are some screenshots taken of the new Quick Notes, File Manager and Image Tools -- all new version 2.6 features.
The screenshots above highlight a few of the new features. Again, here's a more complete list of features.
The database web.confg files, setup scripts and upgrade scripts for version 2.6 are included in the "setup" folder -- for SQL Server, MySQL and SQL CE. For SQLite, we will provide an upgrade script and updated BlogEngine.s3db file for the final release of BlogEngine.NET 2.6.
Thanks to all the BlogEngine.NET 2.6 contributors. Looking to contribute to BlogEngine.NET? Here are a few ways you can contribute! We're also looking for one or more spokespersons.
