We have pushed a preview release of Mono (actually sort of a release).
Find your files, installers, and repos here:

Major differences here are in the Mac and Windows GTK+ stacks, which
have been updated to the latest stable releases.

Also very important: We are dropping support for Mac OSX 10.4 (Tiger).
This is due to problems compiling recent GTK+ on 10.4 as well a general
feeling that most of our users are on 10.5 and above by now.  This means
that 2.6.4 is the last version for 10.4.  Compiling your own newer
versions of mono on 10.4 is still considered supported.

And a note about version numbers:  We are trying to be more disciplined
about releasing only one release per version number.  And since we are
running beta versions of fine products like Mono Tools for Visual Studio
those betas will occasionally eat up a version number.  That is why you
don't see 2.6.5 anywhere (except MonoTools 2.0 beta 1) and 2.6.6
(originally for MonoTools 2.0 beta 2) is a preview and the next official
release will be 2.6.7.

We hope to release 2.6.7 sometime this week, so please let us know
