You need to install a new version, we are at mono 1.0.4 for the stable release
and at 1.1.2 for the development release.

Yes. The new jit that was talked about at the 0.2x time is now the
jit that is distributed in mono.

The interpreter has been updated, but people should not depend on us
maintaining it. Using mint is only sensible on ARM and hppa, but people
interested in running mono on those architectures should invest
their time doing or helping with the jit port. The new jit has been ported
to ppc, sparc, sparc64, s390 and amd64 already.
