Today we are proud to present the first official release of BlogEngine – a full featured blog engine built with simplicity as the primary goal. You can see a list of the most important features right here. BlogEngine is open source and completely free to use. Download BlogEngine here.

Going from beta to release

A lot of alpha and beta testers have provided valuable feedback during the last couple of months – most of which ended up in this release. Some of the testers, as well as the development team have been running BlogEngine as their primary blog for more than two months now, so we are very confident in the stability and quality of this first release.

Eating our own dog food

We wouldn’t be serious about BlogEngine if we didn’t use it to build this website, so of course we did. This website runs on the exact same release as you can now download.

Thank you

Last but certainly not least, we want to thank all beta testers who provided feedback that made BlogEngine 1.0 a reality. Without the feedback, we wouldn't have been able to release as soon as we have. Thanks.
