The first preview build of 2.6 has been published to http://mono.ximian.com/monobuild/preview/download-preview/

The windows installer in this build is known to contain a number of problems, including but not limited to:
* Has an older build (2.4.x) of gluezilla
* Does not contain mono-tools (monodoc browser, gsharp, gendarme, etc.) or gnome-sharp
* Is larger than it was previously despite missing mono-tools, etc.

We are working through these problems but felt that it was more important to get the build (and the preview tarballs) out into your hands.

SLE_10 and openSUSE_10.3 binary packages have been dropped (mono-tools now requires a more recent gtk than available in SLE_10 and 10.3 will be end-of-life around the time we publish 2.6-final).

The DRAFT release notes are here: http://www.mono-project.com/Release_Notes_Mono_2.6
