SPF Moves to CodePlex

Just a quick post to let everyone know that with the release of v1.0.5, SPF has officially gone open-source.  The code (and most recent binary distribution) are now available from CodePlex and have been released under the GPL license. 

The decision to open-source SPF was an easy one.  The biggest factor preventing several companies from implementing SPF in their production environment was the fact that it was neither commercially supported nor open source.  By moving SPF to an open source licensing model, more companies will have the option to experiment and hopefully use SPF to protect their web applications. 

The CodePlex platform also provides public issue tracking and a discussion forum that will hopefully benefit the SPF user base going forward.  Enjoy!

Is this still being supported? I had a problem and left a post in the CodePlex discussion forum on Oct 16 and there has been no reply to this point.

Sorry, looks like the CodePlex emails were getting trapped in my spam filter. I just replied to your post on CodePlex...let's continue the thread there.

I posted a question in April on CodePlex as well and have not gotten a response. Is SPF still being supported?

@Ron: Sorry for not replying to that thread, for some reason I stopped getting notified when anyone posts on CodePlex. SPF is not being actively developed at this point, but we could revive the project at some point if there was sufficient interest.

Open Source?
Do you plan on publishing the actual source on code plex? All I see are buildProcesstemplates for TFS. No source code.

I've also posted a question in the discussions.
