End of development

I've stopped using my Pocket PC, and so I won't be able to continue working on this program.

Upcoming 1.3.0 Release

Sorry about the delay, college started up and ate up my time. Now that summer's here, though, I've gotten started on the PPCDJ program again. Expect a new release in the next couple of days.

PPCDJ Release Delay

Oops, looks like I lied about that 1.2.0 release. Turns out adding comments to more than 400KB of code takes longer than I thought it would (it's just so tedious...). But I did finish all of the other stuff on my list for this release. Now that I've implemented most of the features of the LJ code, 1.3.0 should be really cool: pseudo(HTML)-rich text editor, poll builder, and more. I promise I'll have 1.2.0 out tomorrow (no backs this time, I swear!)

Upcoming PPCDJ 1.2.0-alpha

I've finished most of the stuff for version 1.2.0, and barring any major occurences tomorrow, I should be able to add friends support and make an HTML readme file tomorrow afternoon and release the new version tomorrow night. Stay tuned!

New version 1.1.1-alpha

I've done some quick edits to my 1.1.0-alpha to make it more open-source-friendly. New features include a new encrypting method and a bug fix (the Exit button on the Login window). Also new is the PPCDJ EncDec 1.0 program. Non-PPCDJ users can use this program to encrypt or decrypt messages (or for anything, really).
