Thanks to the tireless testers on the mailing lists, and IRC channels, a good number of issues were spotted in 1.1.6-pre1, that will be fixed with a 1.1.6-pre2 tonight. It's going very well.
People heaping rubbish on Mono and Miguel
Yay, after Microsoft showed another display of classic Microsoftean behaviour by not letting the Monos have a BOF at the PDC, the trolls erupted in joy on Slashdot. Sigh.
I really hate it when people throw mud in the general direction of Miguel and the Monos, who are doing a lot of pretty cool and useful work. Someone has to deal with the C# trap, too.
