Mono Project The Mono project has released Mono 2.0. As most of you will know, Mono is an open-source implementation of Microsoft's .NET framework for Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and other operating systems. The 2.0 release comes packed with new features, the main ones being the compiler upgrade to C# 3.0 with support for LINQ, as well as the inclusion of ADO.NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0 and System.Windows.Forms 2.0. The release notes detail all the changes and new features.

Version Compatibility

My impression from all of the release notes is that Mono is now compatible with .NET 2.0 SP1, with the exception of VB.NET which is still at the .NET 2.0 language level. Mono also bundles a lot of extra APIs, most of which also run on .NET but need to be separately installed there. .NET 3.5 is basically uses the .NET 2.0 SP1 runtime, but has some extra APIs that haven't been ported yet.

Is anyone aware of any other major differences?
