The adapters are now maintained by the community, via CodePlex. Releases are made was needed when significant code contributions are received. See
http://forums.asp.net/t/1083997.aspx. The link to the CodePlex project itself is
http://www.codeplex.com/cssfriendly. The forum here is a great place to initially post a question or get the community to discuss an idea or concern. Currently, the CodePlex site is used only by folks who are
interested in actually contributing to ongoing code development (or to get the latest DLL version of the adapters).

For your second question, not sure about the talk but some people already blogged about using the adapters on MOSS. I myself am using it on a MOSS site, but only the menu control.

Are you using the Adapters for the admin side aswell as any other customer facing site? I'd like to be able to keep the table based ones internally for now but have the adapters work on our web portal for the outside world to use. At the moment by using
the adapters it is breaking the look of the admin side of MOSS. Have you got any pointers to help with the menu's even. We followed the tam tam article.

I'm trying to overcome the same issue, Custa - I've seen a few 'how we did it' blogs for making an internet-facing MOSS site accessible and a few seem to have gone for using the CSS Friendly Adapters with MOSS for their menus. While that's all well and good
for the anonymous site, unfortunately no one's said what they've done about the admin side menus. If anyone out there would enlighten us, I for one would warmly appreciate it!
My current thoughts on getting around this are the following options:
1. write my own web control for the navigation menu and get rid of the CSS Friendly Adapters (defintely borrowing code from it though)
Change the AdapterEnabled variable in WebControlAdapterExtender.cs as per http://blogs.tamtam.nl/frank/PermaLink,guid,fce48fe2-d510-48d9-bb62-2e1cb9d9e47d.aspx, then either:
2. style the span tags output when AdapterEnabled != true
3. try to find out what the methods being overridden by CSS Friendly Adapters output and copy that into the AdapterEnabled != true parts of the CSS Friendly Adapters code - i.e. so instead of spans you're putting the table layout back in
