SunBlogNuke v4.4.5 with Subscription & More Flexibility

Today we are glad that the building v4.4.5 of Ultimate DotNetNuke blog module –  SunBlogNuke is available for free upgrade. It implemented the initial subscription feature with a brand new widget called "Subscription", where you can place into your blog sider bar for users to subscribe the email notification when new post published; in the meanwhile, initially it introduced the extension mechanism with more flexibility and extendibility,  with which you will extend the core framework easily and implemented the customized business logic. For example, you would like to support Markdown Syntax in comments or auto-publish to twitter/facebook (any 3rd-party social services) when writing a new post, now you can complete it by implementing the customized extensions, such as Markdown Extension or Twitter Extension. More awesome widgets are included into this building, such as alternative "Archives" widget and "Profile" widget to show the profile of your blog authors with handy template and tokens. Later we will publish more tutorials about those topics and please stay tune. As usual, the complete details for all of the changes can be found in the Release Notes.

NOTE: As with any release, we recommend you perform a complete file and database backup before performing any upgrade on a production website and that you first conduct a trial upgrade on a staging version of the site. Following these guidelines will ensure that you are able to recover should any unforeseen problems arise during the upgrade process.

Note that some issues may occur if your original version of SunBlogNuke is lower version, like 3.x, and you've developed your customized theme. Please refer to the tutorial - Must-Read Note for SunBlogNuke v4.x and follow the instructions. Hope it makes sense.
