rtur, you have been posting the dev updates about the project on your site which is great: http://www.rtur.net/blog/

Is the upcoming version of blog engine will be based on webforms or MVC?

As per the latest .net framework, web Forms applications cannot take advantage of any of the cool new features of ASP.NET 5.

If new blogengine will use MVC, what version of framework and MVC is being used?

This will be the last based on WebForms.
Next will be MVC, but not upcoming MVC 5, it will be most likely stable 4.6.
MVC 5 goes live next year (it is RC1 right now) and we should catch up when it becomes stable.

Thank you rtur. So, I am assuming, a lot of things will need to be re-written because of the transition from webforms to mvc then why put so much work in making the upcoming version as a big upgrade? Or why not use MVC 4 instead?

Do you have any ETA for the upcoming new blog engine version that you have been working on?

These are steps, not re-writes. Nothing of what was modified will need to be re-written for MVC.
Depends on our designer availability. We should be done long ago but day job keeps messing up schedule.

Thank you, rtur! I'm anxiously awaiting the MVC release.

Please keep up the great work.

Hi Rtur,
