We found two problems with this preview:

  a) mono --aot prevents Nemerle compiler from working, logged as
     #59057, with IL testcase
  b) System.Assembly.GetCustomAttributes() returns now just one copy of
     given attribute A if AttributeUsage(AllowMultiple = true) wasn't
     specified on A. I'm not sure if it's a bug, though MS behavior is
     different here.

Both are regressions from 0.91.
