Yesterday I did a little more work on the Data layer of the framework. It compiles now (finally) though it is just entity type classes and a few related functions. I added some XML serializer code so that any type of object can be saved into an Item. I have to work out some details with the ItemType class though. Also, I still haven’t heard from many people about helping out. I get the feeling they’re waiting for me to do it all for them.
