Is there a Changelog? And web farm problems.

I'm trying to justify to the business upgrading our BlogEngine from 2.0 to 2.7. Is there a changelog that I can use for my justification?

On a related note we've been hosting the blog on two separate servers and using Ben's web farm extension ( It has been a great help in syncing the post caches between the servers, but we're experiencing a serious problem which may or may not be because of the extention.

Random posts seem to have their tags replicated at a rapid pace, resulting in upwards of 200k tags (normal tag count at this time should be 2k). This means BE will take an absurd amount of time looping through the tags, presumably trying to cache them, causing timeouts when trying to access the index page. Is there anyway to solve this?
