Over the last month we released 2 versions of Subtext:

Now we are looking ahead for the next version (Subtext 2.6) which will mainly address the pains of some big blog sites like UGIdotNET and GeeksWithBlogs: with the current version it’s nearly impossible to manage the amount of blogs they have on their site and we will try to make that easier for them to do so. And on our plan there is also the upgrade of the rich text editor to CKEditor 3.

But we are still undecided whether to stay on .NET 3.5 or to upgrade to .NET 4.

Upgrading to .NET 4 which will enable us to take advantage of SQL CE 4 to provide an embedded database option that runs on medium trust, Razor for building skins in the future and using MEF for our plugin architecture.

So, without further ado, please take a second to answer to the following simple question: Which framework should Subtext vNext target/support? (if the form below doesn’t seem like working, please vote directly using the link)

And if you have other feature request, please feel free to comment on this blog post.

I would like to improve the support for aggregated blogs and allow multiple authors too.

What do you mean by "improve support for aggregated blogs"? The multi-blog scenario is exactly what we are trying to address with the 2.6 release.
Can you elaborate a bit more on this? What would you like to see improved?

As for the multi-author.. is in the roadmap for a future version

Today we already have the ability to aggregate blogs but they do not share categories and tags, and is a little strange to navigate. Anyway, that's exactly what you have in mind for version 2.6.
Another suggestion is to create more properties to identify the user. That way we could create a property called "TwitterId" and use it on theme.
And another suggestion is to create a control to read RSS.

No sure if sharing categories is a good idea, but adding a tag cloud for the all aggregated site can be an interesting idea.

As for the more properties for user, it's something we'll include in 3.0 with plugin support, and something to read RSS: it's a bit too specific for the core: but I think that any web control that display RSS feeds would work included into a Subtext skin

Most important feature: that it runs on top of Mono on Linux

@fbar: Mono support is in the roadmap... just not next version

@trendbender: glad you found it useful
