Hi Dmitry,

1. The preview version of ADO.NET will be available with Mono 1.2.
2. Can you please give more details regarding the SIGSEGV ? Procedures
to reproduce the bug ?
3. For running the general tests in Big Endian should be same as Little
Endian hardware. Recently lot of bugs related to Big Endian has been
fixed. So, there should not be any major concern. If you have any
issues, please let us know.
