A new version of Mono (0.12), is out.
Mono is an open source implementation of the Microsoft.NET
Framework, and ships with a C# compiler, a runtime engine
(with a JIT on x86 cpus) and a set of class libraries.
Mono is know to work on a number of platforms:
x86/Linux, x86/Windows, x86/FreeBSD; sparc/solaris;
There have been many changes since the last release of Mono in
late April, thanks to Duncan for assembling the list of new
features, any omissions are my fault.
Changes since 0.11:
It is hard to keep track of the changes, as there are 1632
patches that were posted to the mailing list. One third of
the total number of patches since we opened mono-patches
list. I am sure I missed some stuff and probably missed some
contributors. I apologize in advance.
Paolo: New Reflection.Emit generation code generates
code that can be executed in Windows. Now binaries
generated by Mono/MCS will run on Windows.
Paolo got Activator.CreateInstance to work.
Sergey's CPU-optimization for CPBLK.
Many many bug fixes to the runtime from Dick, Dan
Lewis, Dietmar, Gonzalo, Martin, Paolo, Radek and Sergey,
Many bug fixes: The compiler can now compile Gtk#,
Vorbis#, System.Data assembly and System.Xml assembly
which previously did not work (Dietmar, Miguel, Paolo,
Piers, Ravi, Miguel). Thanks to all the bug
Mike started work on System.Xml.XPath
Christian, Dennis, Daniel and friends got more stubs
for System.Windows.Forms in.
Ajay revamped System.Xml.Schema. And Jason and Duncan
Daniel also checked in a working CodeDOM
implementation and a C# provider.
Many bug fixes by everyone. Thanks to Daniel, Duncan,
Jonathan, Lawrence, Martin Mike, Nick and Piers. I am
missing a lot of contributors that should be listed.
A lot of work from Gonzalo allows some small and
modest ASP.NET applications to run (you still need the
unreleased XSP code though).
Integrated the MySQL provider from Brad Merryl.
Lots of work by Dan, Rodrigo, Tim.
Microsoft.VisualBasic runtime support
Rafael and Chris have been working on the VisualBasic
runtime support DLLs
