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