Release-o-Rama

Nice new releases of software that I use in the last few days.

Banshee 1.5

A new Banshee release, now supports new device syncing options, audiobooks, eMusic and GIO for non-local files. Gabriel has more details as well.

Now with a fully self-contained Mono and Gtk+ stacks on OSX. On the OSX note, I recommend Michael Hutchinson's blog entries on how to package your Gtk# app for use in OSX as well as his article on how to make your Gtk# app integrate with OSX. Both based on the lessons of bringing MonoDevelop and MonoDoc to OSX.

Jeroen Frijters released his IKVM.Reflection API. His API could be very useful for Reflection-Emit compiler writers, perhaps we could even use it in Mono's C# compiler to solve our long standing issues with Reflection. More research is needed on this area.

Maurits Rijk has published a new version of GIMP# his Mono-based plugin engine that lets you write plugins in any Mono supported language. There are samples in C# 3, F#, Boo, Nemerle, Oxygene, IronPython, Java/IKVM and Visual Basic.

Sandy released a new version of Tomboy, now supports exporting data in HTML format to the clipboard and jump Lists on Windows 7.
