This week

- Moved to mscorlib.dll bug fixing. Fixed
    * bug #76876 - base64 didn't consider the option parameter;
    * bug #76750 - SortedList doesn't throw InvalidCastException;
    * bug #71291 - AppDomainSetup (actually it was path issues);
    * bug #75950 - Assembly.CodeBase is always escaped [*]

- Fixed "NotWorking" test cases for NumberFormatter and splitted some
big test cases into several (in order to find what was wrong);

- Implemented missing 1.1 stuff (some of it probably added in SP1)
    * ISerializable for System.Collection.Comparer
    * UnsafeDeserialize and UnsafeDeserializeMethodResponse methods
    for BinaryFormatter.
    and other small corcompare errors

- Looked into a Cecil bug found when decoding security attributes, which
turned out to be an Enum decoding problem;

- Got *major* internet problems lately (including 2 big interruptions in
the last two days). Completed my SecureString patch during the long one
(just sent to mono-devel);

[*] Requires changes to icall signatures (like other bugs I'm working 
on). I will commit them after next release (to make only one increment
in corlib version).

Next week

- Fix the X509Chain issue;
- Continue mscorlib.dll bug fixing.
