Thanks so much. There are currently no plans to release it because it's so specific to DaniWeb's unique featureset.
We currently don't have the sponsorship program because the main benefit was no ads, and I've decided to make it free for all members to choose to not see ads.
However, we do have a donation page where, if you've found DaniWeb helpful, you can choose to donate however much you'd like to our cause: http://www.daniweb.com/home/donate
We've been going through some really hard finanical times lately, so anything would be much appreciated. (One of the biggest reasons is because I spent about 4 months working day and night on coding the new system, essentially ignoring the advertising side of hte business.)
