BlogEngine 1.6 – Released!

February 1, 2010 at 7:50 PMBen

Today BlogEngine.NET 1.6 is available to everyone as announced here.

The two big features are a new Comment Management area to view, edit and delete comments across all posts.  This also includes a new automated comment moderation system.  Just like how you can build custom Extensions, custom filters can be built and plugged into the event system when a new comment is posted.  BE.NET 1.6 ships with two custom filters – a filter for Akismet filter and one for  It’s quite slick.

The other notable feature is Multiple Widget Zones.  This has actually been in the code base for several months now.  I blogged about Multiple Widget Zones back in April.

If you’re upgrading from BE.NET 1.5, there are a couple of changes to be aware of, including one change you must make related to the ExtensionManager sub-folder in the App_Code folder.  Simple upgrade instructions are available here in the documentation.

A more complete list of features and changes in BE.NET 1.6 can be found here.  It’s definitely a worthwhile upgrade I recommend going to.
