I have not updated this blog for a long time now. Main reason for that is that I have been away on parental leave for a couple of days. My son Isak was born on the 14th of October, 6.30 in the morning .

Today I added a new demo for kXScroll. By tweaking it a bit, you can use kXScroll as a css tabular module. The next release for kXScroll will contain a couple of new features as well as improvements. You will be able to loop content, and also put out links on the left and right side/under and above of the scroll at the same time. We will also improve the settings dialog and add some more user friendly controls to it.

The gallery module (kXGallery), all versions are out now at snowcovered. This afternoon I added some more demos to prove that you can use it for displaying streamed wmv content, and also showing that you can incorporate a youtube video nicely. Check it out.

Finally the release of kXGallery is here. A little bit delayed, but we wanted to add more functionality such as bulk-insert and rescaling options to be able to provide a strong product.

kXGallery is based on a javascript library called Grey Box, which is licensed under LGPL. This library is great, and provides many functions that I think that for instance Lightbox. Check it out here

I just added Premium and Ultimate versions of kXScroll v1.2 to snowcovered today. Right now we are working hard on the kXGallery module. New features are being added that needs to be tested. In a couple of days, there will be new dogfooding on this site.

We decided that it is time to release v1.2 of kXScroll. Today the updates was sent out to all subscribers. We released the Basic version on Look out for the Premium and Ultimate version soon.

Time for some dogfooding again. This time we check the release candidate for kXScroll v1.2. We have worked very hard, and can now proudly present a very cool feature. You can inject your modules into the scroll. There is a number of bug fixes also as I mentioned in my last post here. Hopefully it will prove that kXScroll is a quality product, with fast ongoing updates.

A week passes fast. This week we've been occupied by enhancing the gallery module. We have decided to do some more work on that, before releasing it, since there still are some features that we decided to include in the initial release.

There have been some critiscism on our module kXScroll on snowcovered. Actually a bug was found by a customer, so we will try to have a new version out here by the end of next week. We will include some other fixes as well.

Some feedback also stated that our module is not that user friendly and you have to know a lot of HTML to be able to use it. Well being a web master or designer without knowing the basics of HTML is something we did not expect to find among our customers. We will of course take that into consideration and try to provide the module with some more wizards for the most common tasks. We are also investigating how we can inject other DNN Modules in our scroll. That I think would be a very cool feature. Looping the content is also something that is high upon our agenda. Well have a nice weekend!

I found some time this afternoon to finish and publish kXPngFix 2.0 and also to publish the Basic version of kXScroll v1.1. The new stuff in kXPngFix is that we now include a script to take care of your png's in CSS background. Thats great news for those who does not want to clutter their CSS files with this filter workaround for IE, or using two CSS files, one for IE and one for all other browsers.

The Basic version of kXScroll has been finished for some time now, but I have not had the time to publish it on snowcovered.

Well check them out!

I just added the kXPngFix Module information page and demo today. Everything starts to get together now on this site. In a week or so, we will release the gallery module and also release the v2.0 of kXPngFix. That version will support css-backgrounds png's aswell.

Well another weekend to enjoy, Have a nice one.

Yes, its time for another product release. Now it is our gallery module which has been testing as a beta for a while, and now reached release candidate state. I know that this module have some cool features that will be appreciated. The pricing is not decided yet, but we will of course be at a more valuable price than our competitors.

Check out the kXGallery > Demo page.

Yesterday I had to make a slight adjustment for the v1.1 of kXScroll. I had missed to adjust the SQL script to support MS SQL Server 2000. So I had to do a fast fix which forced me to put the v1.1 offline at Snowcovered for a moment. Today it is back on. Thanks to Sian for pointing out that there are users running installation on older SQL Server, and since DNN supports 2000, we shall.

I also took the time to work on this site a little bit. Now there is some information about kXScroll under Modules here.
