[wp-hackers] Two new, long-overdue plugins to make your wordpress life a little easier...

The plugin was called profiles.
There's a development branch at
http://svn.wp-plugins.org/profiles/trunk/which contains a lot of cruft
in wp-data which was an attempt at
implementing what eventually became custom post types (but not a very good
attempt at it).
Seriously, don't use the plugin in its current form, as it has a major SQL
injection attack (it was the first WP plugin I wrote).
Since it sounds like there's interest in this, I'll try and break some time
free over the weekend to code up a version that uses custom post types.
