Well, in my effort to release news on a fairly regular basis - here is the new news report.
Beta has been underway for a couple of weeks now, and I've noticed that a few people have downloaded the project.
I've yet to hear from anyone about bugs/feature requests - so it's difficult to judge how things are going. I would love to hear from some who have downloaded and I would assume have tried it out.
In the meantime I'm starting work on getting contacts working. Work is progressing slowly on the project at this point, however I've gotten the minimum database design for the contacts table down - it can only be expanded from here.
This project will stay in beta status until I've heard from users about any bugs - or lack of bugs (I know there has to be some though, so also fixing the major bugs), before moving this to the next phase.
That's it for now - stayed tuned for more.
