Well, I'm a bit late to the party... but as Scott announced, dasBlog 1.7 is finished. There are numerous and substantial improvements in this version. Some of them were done months ago, and the most substantial came in the last 2 months as Scott and I feverishly whipped dasBlog into a fast asp.net app. We hope we've also given folks the tools to help combat referral and comment spam.

Anyway, I learned a lot about asp.net, programming and dasBlog working on this release. It was really fun and I look forward to working on 1.8 :-).
Some of my favorite 1.7 features
update: if you happen to use dasBlog to do any CrossPosting (post to another blog from dasBlog) DO NOT CrossPost in 1.7. I just found a bug that causes dupes. If you want a fix and can't wait for .2 (which will of course fix these types of things) leave a comment and I will send you an updated patch (one dll).
