DotGNU Portable.Net 0.4.8 is released

Nov 26, 2002 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

An announcement from Rhys Weatherley of the DotGNU project . . .

DotGNU Portable.Net 0.4.8 has been released. Pnetlib 0.4.8 and Treecc 0.1.8 have been released along with it.

The big news for this release is that pnetlib now builds cleanly with pnet and works just fine with ilrun. Hooray! We are finally free of dependency upon third party C# tools.

This is a big deal, as Portable.NET is now pure Free Software, and we will begin publicising this fact around the various community news sites over the next week or so. Contact Gopal or myself if you want to help get the word out.

We now in a position that we can attack pnetlib with a vengenance. Haul out the pnetlib status page, pick a TODO, and off we go.

Thank you very much to everyone who has helped us get this far. A very special thank you to Gopal, who has been hacking like crazy on the system the last two weeks, as you'll see by the many mentions of his name in the NEWS entries below. I hereby dub thee “FFOD II”, in recognition of your efforts Gopal.
