NetSparkle-1.0.48 comes with i18n support

As requested from users of NetSparkle I removed the last pieces of hard coded display text sections. With the 1.0.48 release of NetSparkle only a .resx file has to be generated to run it in a language of your choice.

Downloads and detailed information will be available on our NetSparkle project website. Would be great to get more translations from the community :-)

SharpBox 1.2 - The DropBox API upgrade release
DropBox changed some details in the API and upgrade to version 1.0 a couple days ago. Together with the DropBox team it was possible to be the first open source project which is compatible with the new and more saver API version. The SharpBox 1.2 release brings the changes we made together into an official binary distribution. We decided to do a major release because of some breaking changes in the code.

Thanks to the StoreGate product management team who supports me during the adaption period ......
