Release Notes: This release has a better code generation engine, called Linear IL. Generic sharing is now turned on in all cases. Support for monitoring the runtime internals is now available through a new PerformanceCounters implementation. This release introduces the Attach functionality, SIMD support, a more efficient regex interpreter, a new interactive shell for C#, plus many other improvements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release has compilers for C# 3.0 and VB.NET 8. It includes new bindings for GTK, Cairo, and SQLite, as well as several new Microsoft-compatible APIs, including ADO.NET 2, ASP.NET 2, and Windows.Forms 2, allowing Winforms applications to run on Linux and other Unix systems. Mono 2.0 adds a debugger and the Gendarme "lint" tool for C#.
Release Notes: Support for the ASP.NET AJAX APIs and controls has been added, ASP.NET can now be deployed on a multitude of servers that implement the FastCGI protocol, in addition to Apache. Windows.Forms now supports the WebControl on Windows and Linux using Mozilla. This version can now be used as an SDK for creating Silverlight 1.1 applications on all platforms.
Release Notes: New C# 3.0 features: variable type inference (the "var" keyword), anonymous types, array type inference, object initialization, collection initialization, and automatic properties. AOT now provides some support for 2.0 assemblies.
Release Notes: This is the first release where ASP.NET 2 is considered complete (with the exception of WebParts that are still missing). 1,000 new APIs have been implemented. Shared memory can now be disabled. There is a major ASP.NET performance boost, the beginning of C# 3.0, the new Mono.DataConvert class, many 2.0 Windows.Forms improvements, the start of 3.5 APIs (System.Core), COM support for Callable Wrappers, the 2.0 Socket API, and a Solaris/AMD-64 port. VB can now be used with ASP.NET.
No changes have been submitted for this release.
Release Notes: Runtime and C# will now correctly list all generic interfaces implemented by a given method. This release includes a portability layer in Mono that will address problems without requiring changes to your code. There have been over 100 bugs fixed in Windows.Forms and System.Drawing. The mcs and gmcs code bases have now been unified, which will help reduce maintenance cost of the two compilers.
Release Notes: IronPython 1.0 Beta 8 works with this release out of the box. Windows.Forms and System.Drawing were greatly improved. New default optimizations boost performance for compute intensive applications. A long-standing bug with debugging line numbers was fixed. Preview code is available for the new Compacting GC. The runtime was hardened for verification, AppDomain unloading, and type loading failures. Significant progress was made on ASP.NET 2.0. Some Starter Kits are now functional, and large improvements were made to its test suite.
Release Notes: This release introduces two new ports of the Mono JIT compiler: Itanium and ARM processor. It introduces SSL support on XSP, a reusable Web server, Cairo 1.0 bindings, a more scalable and hardened version of ASP.NET and the new .NET-compatible international collation code, and much more.
Release Notes: The I/O layer and HTTP stack were revamped, giving a performance boost of up to three times in networking applications. Significant Windows.Forms progress was made with lots of new Widgets and improved widgets, eight new ASP.NET 2.x controls, and many compiler bugfixes.
