    Hi all,

    I've taken a look at the issue list for 0.5.5 - and it appears most of the major requirements have been met for this release. Especially the requirement to fetch from other providers.

    Considering a lot of us are waiting on the next release to start importing, is there any chance you can release a snapshot of what you've currently got in the SVN?

    The reason I ask - is essentially my new build is ready to go, minus moving pictures. And I can't do a database import with the previous release obviously. :D



    Anyway - if you're not keen on this, no worries. :)

    If you are, fantastic (I'd love to start importing and using this this weekend..).

    Sorry, for product quality reasons we officially do not support SVN versions. It makes bug tracking and issue resolution much much more difficult and it really just gets buggy code into the end user's hands. And worst of all it creates over the long term the perception of a buggy plug-in. If you really cant wait you can build the DLL yourself using free tools following this guide. I would recommend you wait for the official release though. :p If you do decide to build the DLL yourself, please understand you're on your own as far as bugs go.

    That post isn't meant to be taken as impatience.

    Merely a question given the major functionality of importing from other sources appears to be complete.

    And as I said, if it's not doable - no worries.

    Thanks fforde.

    That's great, I didn't realise I could access the source. My day job is a development role anyway, so a compile shouldn't be an issue. That'll definately get me up and running in the mean time before the next official release.

    Thanks for your help.

    How can you call it "a guide" ? It's very well written, it's easy to understand, uses correct English, and you don't get a headache after reading. It's definetely NOT like the guides I've read before. Must be some other thing :)

    What can I say, I wanted it as easy for other developers to help out as possible. :p If the hurdles to get up and running are lower then hopefully more developers will contribute, even if it's just a patch here and there.

    I wish I could help, but for me C# are just a letter and a symbol put together. The last time I coded something... it was 1989 and I was using Turbo Pascal 3.0 ... MSDOS, not Windows. The world has moved since then :)

    You'd be surprised how little has changed. You got reflection and generics now a days, other than that. Meh, a lot of the same. I did turbo Pascal too, that's was (is?) an object oriented language. so you should be fine. ;)

    Hahaha.... 19 years are a lot of years, I barely remember anything. But I think the Turbo Pascal I learned was not object oriented, if I don't recall bad that was introduced a bit after I quit programming (or at least learning how to program).

    Anyway as I said before, there's still something I can do, so if you need any Spanish translations count on me :)
