I will be working hard on getting all NoNumber extensions ready for Joomla 3.0. And aim at getting them all ready before the launch of Joomla 3.1 (6 months after the release of 3.0).

So it looks like Peter will be working to get his extensions updated as soon as possible.  As individual extensions become 3.0 Ready I will add them to the above list.
