As of today it is easier than ever to install Lemoon in the Cloud. We are now available in the Windows Azure App Gallery which means you can get an installation of Lemoon up and running in Windows Azure in a couple of minutes. See our Windows Azure article for more information.

You can also download and install Lemoon from the Windows Web App Gallery and the Visual Studio Gallery.


Lemoon 4.6.0 is here

Friday, May 03, 2013 11:22 AM release notes

This is a major update. The main focus of this release was upgrading the .NET framework and all other dependencies to their latest versions (see the changelog below for details). Note that since we have upgraded to .NET Framework 4.5 you will need to use Visual Studio 2012 or WebMatrix when developing with Lemoon.


The following features and updates were introduced in this version.

  • Lemoon updated to target the .NET 4.5 Framework
  • Lemoon updated to use MVC 4
  • Lemoon updated to use TinyMCE 3.5.8
  • Lemoon updated to use Plupload 1.5.7
  • Lemoon project template updated to use latest versions of modernizr, twitter bootstrap and jquery.
  • Lemoon project template updated to use System.Web.Optimization instead of SquishIt for bundling and minification of JavaScript and CSS.
  • Added many more options for creating image thumbnails in Mindroute.Core.Services.ImageService.
  • Added option to develop Lemoon projects with [WebMatrix](


The following issues have been fixed in this version.

  • Insert link in HTML editor does not use correct binding for sites with virtual dirs, e.g
  • Edit HTML source does not work in IE10.
  • Right click in admin tree view fails with error message "Load context menu failed".
  • Contentpickers sometimes does not submit all values.
