If you didn’t hear the news, DotNetNuke 6.0.1 was released yesterday, check out Joe’s blog post for more details.
On that note, I put out two new open source releases as well. I updated DNNSimpleArticle with a fix for DNN6 and made made a few other minor changes. As always, the module is released in C# and you can get the installable package, or the source package over on http://dnnsimplearticle.codeplex.com/. If you want to see the module in action check out http://www.bicycletips.com/
I also released an update for Multifunction, the World’s Best Free DotNetNuke Skin. It has a minor CSS fix for DNN6 (and 6.0.1). I also removed the custom actions menu it was using in favor of the new DotNetNuke 6 specific actions menu. MultiFunction is a C# skin, with both install and source packages available from http://multifunction.codeplex.com/
Be sure to rate both releases when you download!
Back in May I picked up a variety of parts from the Maker Faire in San Mateo. One of those parts (2x actually) was the Maker Shield.
I don’t think I’ve ever soldered this much on a circuit board before. I did plenty of soldering for the Project 240z back in the day, but it was all just joining wiring together for the Megasquirt and the fuel injection system. You can see some photos of the Maker Shield here.

So what am I going to do with that? Well, attach it to my Netduino Plus of course! Like so:
But really, what am I going to do with it now? Who knows, but now that I have it together I have more options!
I have another Maker Shield to put together at some point, but right now I honestly can’t see needing two right away.
