Today Microsoft announced the availability of .NET Core 1.0.0 RC2 with VS2015 Tooling Preview 1.
The documentation about the release is available as follows:
The last link above point to the installation. I choose the Visual Studio Official MSI Installer
Another announcement made this very same day, is the realise of Entity Framework Core RC2
I then followed this tutorial to create a ASP.NET Core MVC application
Everything worked as expected!
This weekend I migrated my blog over to blogengine.net version 3.3.
- Export your blog from DasBlog using the DasBlogMS tool. This tool use to be publicly available, but that does not appear to be the case anymore. Fortunately I was able to find a copy here, thank-you Shital Shah.
- After you have downloaded and installed blogengine.net log in as Admin. Now go to http://[YourDomainName]/admin/#/settings/advanced.
- Under tools click on the import button. Select the XML file you created earlier.
After the import
The imported blogs reside in the BlogEngine.NET\App_Data\posts folder. You may not see these files using the solution explorer in visual studio, so open up the folder in File Explorer.
I found that I had to change the Author name for all my imports to "Admin" (i.e. <author>Admin</author>)
The application emails out a newsletter and the mailing list has some fictitious names you need to remove. Open BlogEngine.NET\App_Data\newsletter.xml and remove the unwanted entries.
