Qgyen.ExtendedUrlMapping for CS v2.1

Qgyen.ExtendedUrlMapping v2.1.60714

With the release of Community Server v2.1 Beta1, I've now packaged up a new version of my extended url mapping add-on.  This add-on allows you to very easily map one URL within Community Server to another.  For instance, it allows you to safely and easily move a blog in CS to the root of your site.  You simply map / to match up to /blogs/myblog/.  Or you can use it to move your photos to /photos/ from /photos/mygallery/.  This allows for a quick and easy way to get CS from its default multiple blog, multiple gallery configuration to a single blog or single gallery setup, with a lot of flexibility.

This new version doesn't contain any new features, but the API for how it works changed just slightly with Community Server v2.1.  So, the previous release will not work on CS v2.1, and the new build of this module will not work with CS v2.0.  Additionally, with CS v2.0, we'd found an issue with the ASP.NET 2.0 framework where pages were redirecting improperly, causing sites to disappear from search engines like Google and MSN.  The work around to this was a different overload of a method in the .NET 2.0 framework, and this was implemented in CS v2.1.  However, this module takes over that piece of code.  To resolve this, the new release contains both an ASP.NET 1.1 build and an ASP.NET 2.0 build that correctly addresses the problem.

This contains both a compiled binary for ASP.NET 1.1 and ASP.NET 2.0, as well as the source code/solution files for ASP.NET 1.1 and ASP.NET 2.0.
