Mono 2.6 hit the repo yesterday

Yesterday I released Mono 2.6 and Monodevelop 2.2 for Arch Linux. I think we are the first distribution (ok, the SuSE/Novell guys are the first one, but that isn’t really a surprise. As you all know mono is sponsored by Novell) which ships the new mono release. To give you more possibilities with the framework, I have activate the new C# 4.0 Mono implementation in the package. As the release notes say:

If Mono 2.6 is configured with the preview mode, you will also get early access to Mono’s C# 4.0 implementation. This implementation is now available as part of the dmcs command. C# 4.0 named arguments and optional parameters have been fully implemented.

The next highlight of the release is the more complete 3.5 API coverage and it includes Microsoft’s open sourced ASP.NET MVC, ASP.NET AJAX and Microsoft’s Dynamic Language Runtime. If you want more information about the changes look at the linked release notes above or at this post from Miguel.

Report any packaging bugs to our bugtracker and if you find a bug in mono itself, don’t hesitate to fill a bug report at mono’s bugtracker.
