I'm VERY interested in the .NET/C# wrapper. I'm also VERY interested in how
you got it to work since I've attempted it myself. I never did get it to

I am not sure if I can be much help to anyone's efforts to create a new
Windows front-end using this new wrapper, but I would sure love to try. I
have written software in .NET/C# and enjoy doing so. In the meantime, I
would love to work with this wrapper to familiarize myself better with using
the Sword API. I use the VS 2005 Express Editions myself, so if I am able to
assist you, I already know the development tools you are using!

Please let us know when you have this available and any special notes about
it. Question: What are your thoughts for the wrapper's license?

Also, does this mean you will stop work on the wxWidgets/wxMozilla version?

Jason, thank you for your work!!!

God Bless,
Greg M.
