The plugin base, the performance plugins, the connection system and connection plugins have all been recoded and made ready for the first beta. Everything is going well but I've given up on the CVS for now. I'll release some code and binaries when beta 1 is ready and I'll see about getting the CVS going again.
Spike.NET has moved to to Source Forge to get wider coverage and benifit from the great features that SF provide. Currently still in pre-alpha I estimate there maybe a months worth more work todo before the release of the first beta. DUring this time the source can be accessed with anon CVS but the source is not guaranteed to be in any state to compile let alone be stable.
