Preview to Personal .NET Portal Version 3

Version 3 of the Personal .NET Portal will come with several improvements in stability and usability.
We will update the portal from ASP.NET 2.0 to 3.5. This allows us to use some Ajax Controls to make the configuration of some modules easier. Also we can put some modules into ASP.NET UpdatePanels so that user experience might be in a more natural manner.
There is still some work until the release of version 3, but we hope to bring it as soon as possible.

Personal .NET Portal is still alive!

While Arthur (founder of this project) wrote that the development on version 2.0 had been stopped, we continued his work.

Some new modules have been added and the project has been updated to ASP.NET 2.0. We also made a lot of bug fixing. So this project is more alive than ever.

We will release the version 2.0 very soon.

Version 2.0 is dead!

Sorry, development on the 2.0 Version has been stoped.

It's just to much Work and no one will need a SQL Database and dynamic Data Access Layers.

This Portal should stay a SIMPLE Portal for Personal use.

Preview Version

I've very little time in the last weeks so progress of the Protal is very slowly now (I've some troubles with my motor bike, the gearbox needs some

I released this Version to show you that the project isn't dead!

Work is in progress. Do not use it in a production environment!

What's new
You can choose your personal favourite Data Access Layer (XML, SQLServer, etc.). The default
Data Access Layer is still XML!
You can also define more than one Portal eg. one for you, one for a friend of yours.

First Release

At last! The First Release 1.0!

There are still some Modules missing, but I put them into another Project (Contacts, Calendar, EMail - Groupware).

Because those missing modules are not Part of the infrastructure and my Homepage has started I decided to release the first Version. Additional Modules will be released in a separate Package.

@Linux: The last CVS Version is able to launch the Protal, but there are troubles with Datasets, so I was unable to login or view the "News" or "QuickLinks" Module. But its on the Way.
