[Mono-osx] [BUMP] Re: [Mono-dev] Alpha blending in libgdiplus (call for testers)

I'm interested in (and am grateful for) your work, but couldn't check it out
I managed to compile Mono SVN on Windows, but didn't try on openSUSE yet.

I wish there was a repo for Mono nightly builds for openSUSE 11.1. There is
only one for 11.0 as far as I know
(http://en.opensuse.org/Additional_YaST_Package_Repositories#Mono), and
don't understand why 11.1 is still left out although it's been out for
several months. Am I missing something?

I also wish libgdiplus was used on Mono Windows, which would make testing
easier, and make Mono more consistent across platforms. Has this ever been
considered? I think using GDI+ on Windows and libgdiplus on other platforms
makes things harder than using libgdiplus everywhere (even if GDI+ may be
currently superior to libgdiplus on several aspects).
Would a lot of work be needed to make libgdiplus run on Windows?

Sorry for the hijacking.
