Does the latest version of Blog Engine work on a web farm?

We have multiple web servers front ended by load balancers. We use SQL 2008 as our shared DB.

I am discussing a similar issue in another thread here....   http://blogengine.codeplex.com/discussions/70841#post904835

I'm also interested in whether this is officially supported.  I've reported an issue using an older version of BlogEngine.NET that seems to be related to a reliance on local memory (static variables, Application object and/or local Session state), though I haven't tried to identify the actual cause yet:

Amy update on this?

Is this feature a dead duck for blogengine?

Web farm is not officially supported, but since we moved to multiple instances on single install it is one of the primary goals to improve scalability.

I have a webfarm and need to flow incoming connections across servers.
The requirement is to have the blog under the primary domain for Google SEO benefits.
Hence the need to spread it.

I could host it ( in a non redundant way ) but that requires another domain and Google treats it differently.

So do I take your reply as No to my requirement

thanks for replying by the way

More like "inconclusive", app not tested under web balancing. Sure I can guess there would be issues, but only way to say "yes" or "no" is actually try it.
