Hey guys,

   Thanks to the Winforms team, we have been able to make a lot of
progress on Windows.Forms.   The availability of WineLib packages
improved the situation vastly, and things like the effort lead by
Timothy's sample code with screenshots to identify the bugs was a key to
the development of it:


   Windows.Forms today is still far from being able to run most of the
production applications written in .NET, but we want to fix that.  

   We want to push for a particular milestone: running WebMatrix out of
the box on Linux and MacOS with Mono.   This is a fairly large Winforms
application that excercises plenty of areas in Winforms and the
runtime.  If you want to help this happen, please join us on the
mono-winforms-list@ximian.  Make sure you check frequently our Wiki page
on Windows.Forms progress:
