                 Hi All,

  Now that we have branched for mono 2.0, we would like to merge the
work done on the linear IR branch to svn HEAD. The
linear IR branch was created in 2005 October to explore some ideas on
how to make our JIT simpler and how to make
it generate better code. A lot of work has been put into the branch
over the years, and now we are ready to merge it.
Changes of this magnitude are never easy, so svn head might be a bit
unstable for a few weeks as we work out the problems. Documentation
for the new JIT and some benchmarks can be found at

I plan to do the merge tomorrow. Until then, please avoid checking in
code to the mono/mini directory so as to not interfere with the merge.
