The Mono development team has announced the official release of Mono 1.2.6, the latest version of Novell’s open source .NET implementation. Mono 1.2.6 includes numerous improvements to both the Mono runtime engine and development components.
One particularly notable feature in the new release is support for developing Silverlight 1.1 applications. Mono 1.2.6 also adds support for Windows.Forms on Mac OS X with a native Quartz backend. This feature, which is still considered experimental, will make it possible for Mono WinForms applications to work on Mac OS X without having to run inside of X11. Another major Windows.Forms improvement is the addition of a Gecko-based web browser control.
