The more appropriate list for SWF related questions would probably be 
mono-winforms-list .

To answer your question: We don't support or work on the SWF version that

You can pull the new managed implementation from cvs, it's in 
mcs/class/Managed.Windows.Forms and try your hello world app there. Chances 
are it just runs :-) (But see the above september message for what's there 
and what's not there yet).
