Official Mono Beta Released

I've talked about the mono project before. It is an open source project that is converting the .NET Framework to non-Windows platforms including Linux (Red Hat & SuSE) and the Mac OS X. There is also a Windows installer for using Mono on Windows.

A C# compiler was created a long time ago, and it works great. All of the C# code from Sams Teach Yourself the C# Language in 21 Days was ran through this compiler. The C# language was fully supported. What has been lacking are classes from the .NET Framework. Now with a first beta released, some of the classes are available.

For more information on this release, you can go to http://www.go-mono.com/archive/beta1/beta1.html. You can download the Mono code or files from http://www.go-mono.com/download.html.

 

Note that this is the first of two betas. It does not support all the classes yet. If you are interested in .NET on non-Windows platforms, this is worth a look!
