Goodbye .Text, Hello SubText

Mr. Haack and crew finally made a public release of SubText available and I jumped at the opportunity to upgrade from .Text.

My impressions thus far:

  • they really nailed the install and migration experience, kudos!
  • I like the new skins, I wish there were more
  • The admin interface got a patchy here-and-there facelift, but the layout is messed up in IE, bummer.
  • Its still not the engine for blog monetization (admittedly, that isn't a project goal)
  • I was hoping to see verbose URL's but its pretty far off on the roadmap, not sure why (doesnt seem like a complex feature). It would be very helpful for SEO purposes.

I'll play with the skins some more over the coming days and weeks...
