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 is that the development effort will be refocused on the 2.0 release, which hopefully won’t take quite as long as 1.9.5 did.

 The main focus for the 2.0 release is a new plugin model that promises to be a major improvement over the current one and a custom MembershipProvider using the .NET 2.0 membership APIs. Of course, we are always looking at refactoring and code cleanup to help improve the stability and maintainability of the code base as well.

The new features included in this release are:
