Subtext 1.9.5 Released
Subtext 1.9.5 has been released to the public. This is primarily a bug-fix release but does include some new features. Oddly enough, this is the first release to go out the door without a codename. Installing on a clean machine or upgrading an earlier 1.9 release are both relatively easy. If there are any ideas to make upgrading easier, we'd love to hear them. This is scheduled to be the last release in the 1.9 branch, unless there are high priority bugs found that need to be fixed. What this means ......

Windows Live Writer and Subtext
Jeff has updated his original post about configuring Windows Live Writer for .Text so that it shows how to configure WLW for use with Subtext. The nice thing is that this is very simple and really just involves running through the wizard and selecting "Another weblog service" as the blog type. Don't forget to check out Jeff's post on configuring pings in Windows Live Writer ......

GWB Conversion to Subtext
Jeff just recently posted that the conversion of from .Text to Subtext is back underway. I am really looking forward to seeing the conversion complete. Subtext has a lot of great features and has a very active development community. I'm sure GWB will be converting to Subtext 1.9 for now, and hopefully will upgrade to 2.0 when it comes out. As part of the conversion, Jeff is looking to not only change the look and feel for the homepage, but also update it to be more Web 2.0-ish ......

Subtext CruiseControl.NET dashboard facelift
The Subtext CruiseControl.NET dashboard has undergone a major facelift this weekend. It now has a new CNAME record, which allows access to it from: http://build.subtextproject... This change is the beginning of an effort to enhance the documentation for the project and make it easier for users to find everything. To go along with the new address, the dashboard itself received a huge overhaul as well. It now sports a nice, clean feel that matches the main Subtext project site. There are still ......

February was busy!
All I can say is, "Wow!" I just looked at my blog and realized that I posted 34 posts for last month. I'm sure some of you may not think this is a large amount, but for me it represented the single busiest month of blogging since I started almost a year ago. I don't know how busy I'll be blogging this month, but I know I will be busy. Here is my current list of projects (outside of real work, that is): Update my File Downloader component with asynchronous download support. Update my Framework Version ......

Subtext 1.9.4, aka Windward, released
The long awaited 1.9.4 release is finally here. This release fixes a number of bugs and implements a few new features. One of the more significant features is the Sitemap implementation. You can find more information on the implementation and instructions on how to set it up on David's blog. There is also a new set of XFN icons to go along with Subtext's XFN Highlighter. I think the new icons and highlighter will work very well with my new XFN Link Editor for Windows Live Writer (once it finally ......

When 2.0 is released (hopefully by the end of the year), it will be using a spinoff of .Text named SubText. With the death of other great open source projects like NDoc, I decided to do my part and contribute as a developer on this one. I'm starting with reviewing and fixing the FxCop violations. So far, I've finished 2 of the projects.
