dasblog-logo-200.jpgIt's been a long time since 1.6, but Omar, myself, and the dasBlogCE team are proud to announce availabilty of newtelligence dasBlog Community Edition 1.7.5016.1.  Thanks to Chris Anderson for starting it all with BlogX and thanks to Clemens for rewriting it all :) with the 1.6 codebase, and his support of the move to SourceForge. 

As you've probably heard, dasBlogCE 1.7 has dozens of new features and some major performance enhancements. DasBlog-run blogs have previously survived several SlashDotting's

Starting with 1.7, dasBlog is now newtelligence dasBlog Community Edition and has a rich Version History.

Some related links:

Feel free to donate to support DasBlog if it makes you happy. Any $ will go to pay for bandwidth on various dasBlogCE supporting websites. I can guarantee I won't buy beer with it, but I may buy Diet Rite.


UPDATE: Not all the mirrors have dasBlog yet, but you can get the bits here (NOTE: cut and paste, the clickthrough won't work. Make sure you're getitng 1.7.5016.1.)

I've tried downloading the source zip file a couple of times and each I try to open the file I get a corrupted file error. Any ideas?

Hum, it seems that no mirror has the web files package right now, i just dw the upgrader package.

Yep, I'm seeing the same problem with the Web package: I can't find it on any of the mirrors.

If I were to move from .TEXT to dasBlog (not sure if I'm going to yet, but thinking about it), is there any import utility that will allow me to do so with relative ease?

Any word on the source files Scott?

Josh: I'm thinking of converting to dasBlog as well. Here is a link to a .Text to dasBlog conversion utility:

Nice work. Runs quite smoothly so far... much faster than before.

I got the 1.7.5016.0 version, there's a special step to go to 1.7.5016.1 ?
Wednesday, January 19, 2005 5:12:16 PM UTC
Matthieu - No special step. Just get the WebFiles and copy the DLLs from WebFiles into your BIN folder.
