The team's work continues on dasBlog. You can see the moment to moment details in the Bugs or Tracker section of SF.

If that's too much data, there's a roll up on the Wiki that shows the bugs, new features and goodness that'll be in an upcoming "point release" of 1.7 if you've been wisely hanging back while we tighten the screws.

Here's some highlights:

  • Admin: UploadImage and UploadAttachment have returned in their previous incarnations. We also include the Image Gallery (which some people dig immensely) and support for an RSS Enclosure.
  • Macros: We support two new macros for "Compressed Titles" that can allow dasBlog users to completely remove the look of "permalink.aspx" in lieu of something like: http://www.hanselman.com/blog/WorkContinuesOnDasBlog.aspx. Some tweaks and controversy remain. We shall see.
  • Small Breaking Change: The TitleList macro will require parens to be called, ala TitleList().
  • And lots of small bug fixes.

More soon.

I totally liked the way Upload Image worked in version 1.6 better than that of 1.7. In 1.7, I upload image and then I have to look for what I uploaded, and then I can insert the image to the blog. I'll be looking forward to it!

Here's a real challenge for manly coders: get rid of the .aspx at the end of

http://www.hanselman.com/blog/WorkContinuesOnDasBlog.aspx

Having the .aspx kind of negates the whole "friendly URL" concept in my opinion.

And yes, I know this is extremely difficult without real IIS-level rewriting support.

Hi Scott,
I've been using dasblog for a couple months now and tonight decided to upgrade to 1.7 I downloaded the version from sourceforge and the upgrade seemed flawless. That was when I noticed the Catpcha images weren't showing up in my post comments section. It appears that I did not recieve a copy of the CaptchImage.aspx. Correct me if i'm wrong, thanks!

CaptchaImage.aspx doesn't exist as a page. It's an IHttpHandler that is configured in the web.config. Check the web.config that came with the upgrade, you'll need to merge it with yours.

Also, try to use SF.net to post questions and you'll have the whole team working for you, rather than just me.
