My first forays into the world of Avalon (Windows Presentation Foundation) are going well. Avalon databinding is very nice. Speeds up UI devlopment heaps, which gives you plenty of time to waste trying to work out how to do things since there's little documentation to help.

Anyway, here's a screenshot to show you some stuff. Sorry... I haven't been wasting time putting in lots of pretty animations and gradients. The hardest thing so far was getting the treeview in there. ObservableCollection is great, but ObservableDictionary would be great too...

RikMigrations is a database migration library for .NET based on the migrations facility provided by Ruby on Rails. It allows simple upgrading and downgrading of databases using .NET code (such as VB or C#) either from the command line or built into your application. Unlike many other migration frameworks, RikMigrations is a stand-alone library which does not rely on a large surrounding framework.
