Application Development: Mono Project 2.0 Thrives
The Mono Project, an effort to deliver an open-source implementation of the .NET Framework, released Mono 2.0 on Oct. 7. Mono Project founder Miguel de Icaza says Mono 2.0 is an open-source, cross-platform .NET development framework. Mono 2.0 provides all the necessary software to develop and run .NET client and server applications on Linux, as well as other operating systems. The Mono 2.0 release is compatible with the desktop and server components of Version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework and features MoMA, the Mono Migration Analyzer, an analytical tool for .NET-to-Linux migrations.
