I’ve posted a small helper library to act as a semantic version replacement for the System.Version object.
It implements most of the same functionality as System.Version and adds a few extras (like methods to increment the version number forward).
More information on semantic versioning can be found here: semver.org.

The source for Summerset.SemanticVersion can be found at Github.

A new bug tracking server running MantisBT has been launched today! Registration will be required for posting and initially for viewing bugs (however, this will likely change shortly).
In the not-too-distant future, automatic bug reporting will be extended into all commercially-released software packages, as well as into other products where appropriate (binary releases, such as blackberry software).
Over the next 4-6 weeks, several new projects should be rolling out the door or nearing completion.
The first, is a cloud-based time tracking and reporting app called that’s tentatively being called ‘Team Time Tracker’ (although, that’s likely to chance to something a little catchier). That project is a collaboration with http://ehdev.io. When it’s complete, or getting close to that, an entry will be made on this site’s projects page so be sure to check that out when it’s finally posted.
The second will be an opensource release for a licensing system called FOSS Lock. It’s based on the concept of another opensource called ActiveLock. We originally thought about contributing to the project, or forking it .. however the state of that source just finally led us to decide a fresh start based on the idea would be the far better alternative. FOSS Lock is being written to be cross platform (working with the mono clr implementation.). Subsequent releases may add support for additional platforms such as jre.
Finally, a long overdue release of Chameleon POS improved to run on WPF will be released. Other very exciting aspects of this release is that it is not longer strictly tied into running on Microsoft SQL Server, instead you will be free to use any rdbms you like that provides an driver that supports Entity Framework. Keep an eye here. The chameleonpos website will be relaunched as this version comes closer to release.
The stable and fully-documented release of ISBNdb helper has been posted to http://isbndbhelper.codeplex.com.
Also, in addition to the in-line, intellisense documentation, I’ve also posted a short quick-start guide under the documentation page.
If you have any questions or suggestions for improvement, check out the ‘readme.txt’ for my contact information.
Our ISBNDB.com helper library has just been published to codeplex.
This is a .NET dll that encapsulates all the functionality provided by the CGI api at ISBNDB.com in .NET classes.
See the page at isbndbhelper.codeplex.com for additional information.
Also, just note that this release is still an alpha release. The final release won’t change the interface of any of the classes, so you could safely begin to implement this in a project. The final release should be within the next 2 weeks.
