Hello Pablo, Mark,

    Congratulations to Mark on the fantastic job that he has done with
the new garbage collector.  This is great progress.

    And we need to thank Codice for helping with the test suites,
providing us tests, and running Mono with SGen under stress.   This is
the kind of contribution that does not come in every day, and one that
requires a lot of work on their part.


> Hi all,
> Yesterday night I had the opportunity to make a tiny contribution to
> Mark's big effort on sgen implementation.
> We were running a heavy load test consisting on 80 plastic scm clients
> working against a single server, which was using sgen.
> The test has been run several times already but yesterday: it worked fine!!
> More than 10 hours working non stop, allocating and releasing memory and
> being able to keep a much lower mem-footprint than its Boehm counterpart!!!!
> There're still many things to work on but... sgen is coming!!
> Congratulations!
