Release Notes

Minimum Required DNN Version: 4.06.02

General Code organization

* Converted project to .NET 3.5
* Converted solution to Visual Studio 2008
* Reorganized the project folder structure under components to reflect the namespaces
* Set the default namespace in the project and have everything work underneath that
* Separate the IMetaWeblog from IBlogger, IMoveableType, and IWordPress.
* Objects native to those formats were also moved to their own namespace. This avoids having WPCategoryInfo vs MetaWeblogCategoryInfo.
* Moved BlogPost.ashx.vb to the main namespace and it can now implement multiple protocols.
* Moved SqlDataProvider into the main project. There is no longer need for another DLL for the DAL
* Moved all external project stuff (scripts, manifest, build file) to their own directory.
* Implemented BlogModuleProvider.getItem for filling categories. This was needed to implement the multiple/hierarchical categories
* New RSS writer that includes additional (Blog proprietary) elements in the feed
* Added NANT support of 64 bit platforms

General Bug fixes, found but not documented in Gemini

* Implemented static methods in the controller classes. It saves having to create them all the time in code.
* New settings under Module Options for RSS
* Abstracted the Blog Settings. There is now a single class (BlogSettings) where the retrieval, defaulting, saving, and caching takes place.
* Switched the project to ‘option strict on’ (Why was this off to begin with? Yah, I know… wasn’t me :-) I swear!)
* Fixed some non-localized texts
* Adjusted IActionable on several controls to make new controls accessible
* Resolved numerous XHTML issues (We are now 100% compliant – Thanks Timo!)
* Introduced 'Save as draft' option when creating a blog entry

It's almost November and there still isn't a patch release for Consolidated RSS Feeds.

Perfect except when I add an image on my text. I still see there is an entry in the blog, but can't see or edit it.

This module update blew up my otherwise very stable DNN 5.2.3 installation. Had to manually revert database to pre-Blog 4.0.0 update to restore installation functionality.
