We just posted for DotNetNuke to the download page on

It contains no new functionality, but it was upgraded to Silverlight 3.0. The most important thing was that you no longer have to edit the web.config to install it in DNN4 :)

We also had to fix a bug with DNN5. We were passing the DNN Core UserInfo object to the WhoAmI module but it appears additional properties were added to this class that would not serialize so the module broke.

It was an easy fix to make our own custom object and use that to pass user information to the Silverlight WhoAmI module.

There is a LOT more planned. The project has been in "hibernation" for most of this year because we knew big things were going to be released with Silverlight 3.0 and it did not disappoint.


The first thing we plan to do is upgrade the windows using the new Silverlight Child Window Control.

Next, we plan to allow end users to upload and save their own Silverlight applications (but we will be careful to not allow them to run any database scripts or access any server information other than their own).


We are also working on an application that will allow Silverlight applications to interact with your Windows Desktop. Think files dragged and dropped from your desktop directly onto your file folder on the server. The "upload box" will become a relic of the past :)

Of course this will have tight security, that's why were still working on it, but you can take a look at the CodePlex project and you can see we already have a ton of code already. Look for something on that project in November. It will be part of SilverlightDesktop and your users will just click a button to install it (or not if the whole concept simply freaks them out!)
