I'm happy to present a new release of NObjective bridge. 
NObjective is a high-performance low-level bridge from Mono to Objective-C
Also it provides automatically generated proxies around all Objective-C
classes so you don't need to create them manually like in mobjc, monobjc,

This release brings unbeatable performance and significantly reduced startup
