Current xbuild status:

It can handle solutions (.sln) now, thanks to Jonathan Chambers,
with C#, VB.net projects. Handles embedded resources, satellite
assemblies, project references etc.

Eg. Paint.Net 3 ( builds completely with it now, IronPython (2.0.1)
builds, IronPython svn (builds with compile time errors) etc.

Only .net 2.0 projects are supported currently though. I will start
adding support for newer versions very soon, also ASP.NET, Silverlight
etc projects.

This is part of the mono 2.4.2 release
and is a *big* improvement over xbuild in the last release.
Would be really helpful to get feedback and bug reports on this :)
You can file bugs at : http://www.mono-project.com/Bugs

I will be putting up a page with TODO items for xbuild, and will communicate
that on the list.
