Yesterday I released NDEPHP. NDEPHP is basically an implementation of the Nullsoft Database Engine in PHP. This is what Winamp uses for its Media Library, among other things. The NDEPHP library will allow you to read Winamp's Media Library in PHP. Please see The NDEPHP Google Code project for more details.
Today, I finally released the source code for my Userbar Generator. It is written in Visual Basic 2005 and hence requires either Visual Studio 2005 or Visual Basic 2005 Express (the latter being free).
It may be found at http://dev.dansoftaustralia.net/projects/userbargen/. If you make any significant changes, please feel free to contribute. :)
Thanks for understanding!
Note that this is still in beta, so a few small bugs are expected...
I'd like to thank StyleShout for the excellent design!
Anyone may sign up, and registering your project gives you access to these main features:
- Subversion (SVN) access
Easily manage your project's source code
- File Release System
An easy-to-use system to store all your project's releases. Each project may have more than one "package", and each package may have any number of files.
- News Announcements
Any news relating to your project may be posted to its homepage. Selected news articles will appear on the dev.dansoftaustralia.net and www.dansoftaustralia.net homepages.
- Website hosting (including PHP)
Each project gets its own homepage at [project name].dev.dansoftaustralia.net. For security reasons, you'll need to contact me if you want access to the website hosting. The websites are created after you register, but I have to give you the server access details.
- Task management (TODO list)
Keep track of what you need to do
- Issue/Bug Tracking
Easily track bugs in your project
- Documentation Management
A simple documentation management system, to upload any relevant documentation
- Mailing lists (may not be operational at the moment)
Probably the most useful feature is Subversion - It's a very easy-to-use SCM (Source Code Management) system, and allows multiple developers to work on the same code simultaneously (although it's also useful for single developers - I use it for the SMFShop code). Speaking of this, note that for anyone using the SVN version of SMFShop, it has moved to http://dev.dansoftaustralia.net/svn/smfshop/trunk/. Also, the development snapshots and statistics have moved to http://smfshop.dev.dansoftaustralia.net/. I hope you enjoy it!
I've finally removed my old site engine (it was getting old, and I never actually finished it). This site is now powered using CMS Made Simple. If you encounter any problems, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks to kermit for reporting a problem viewing this site in Firefox, this has been fixed now :)
Also, I have worked on several SMF Mods over the past few months, and now have 10 different mods available. Please see http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=search;author=9547 for the complete list of my mods (I'll update this site soon).

- Category support: You can now categorise your items
- Permissions: You can disable access to the shop for certain membergroups
- Bonuses per character and word: Give bonuses to a user depending on the number of characters or words in their post
