Karvonite Persistence Framework Now Supports XNA

We have received word from the folks over at http://www.karvonite.com that their free .Net Persistence Framework now has support for both XNA and the .Net Compact Framework, including the XBox 360.  From the site:

Karvonite is a FREE persistence framework with a propietary data storage engine for the .NET Framework 2 and it focuses on the manipulation and persistence. This technology provides a new direction for how small to midsize applications can store and deploy data. Karvonite is not an O/R mapping tool for a very good reason. There is no relational world to map to. In Karvonite, object data is persisted to an object library.

Karvonite persistence framework is well-suited for applications where XML files or .NET serialization features are not enough and the horsepower of a SQL engine is unnecessary.

Nuclex.Fonts - Proper Text Rendering System

The folks over at http://www.nuclex.org are close to finishing up their new Nuclex.Fonts Propert Text Rendering System.  The font importer integrates with the XNA build process, so there are no external utilities involved. Just add an XML file with import instructions to your project for any font you want to have available in your XNA application and compile. A platform independent .xnb file will be generated (the exact same way it happens when you add a bitmap or effect to your project).  The system is just completed yet but there is a workable version available for download... Check it out...
