[Mono-dev] State of support for VB.NET

Hi Alex,

For precompiled usage (VB.NET 1.x (7.x?)) I think our MSVB.dll is good
enough, but currently mbas isn't able to compile any page (Sorry can
get yet to work on the fix).

The newest compiler in the family, vbnc will be able to compile VB.NET
2.0 (8.0?) but it is still in the beginning.

So if you have full codebehind precompiled ASP.NET 1.x pages with
VB.NET you can give Mono a spin, and tell us if you find any bug.

Thank you for your questions and we await your feedback,
