Infragistics Announces Support for Mono

by Miguel de Icaza

Today Infragistics announced that their NetAdvantage for ASP.NET will support Mono out of the box.

We loved working with Infragistics on this project, and I am very proud of the work that the Mono team did to get these fabulous controls working with Mono.

You can read more about Infragistics and Mono on Infragistics site where you can also try out some of their sample applications running on Linux with Mono.

From the press release:

"In recent years, our customers have indicated that their organizations are moving to mixed IT environments and require UI tools that enable them to deploy applications in either Windows or open source environments," said Dean Guida, CEO of Infragistics. "With Mono compatibility in our ASP.NET toolkit, we enable developers who have a need for open source development to create UIs that are the basis for Killer Applications and deliver the best user experiences possible."

Infragistics ASP.NET toolset excels in top performance, flexibility and usability and enables developers to build rich Web applications for line of business. By providing full compatibility with the Mono runtime, Infragistics extends this functionality to the Mono community.

Coinciding with today's NetAdvantage for .NET 2010 Volume 2 availability, Infragistics highlights the ASP.NET toolkit's Mono compatibility through Sample Showcase hosted on a live Linux Server running Mono:

For us this is a very important milestone as developers building .NET applications need to complement the core framework with packaged components like the ones that Infragistics provides.

It also shows the maturity of the project, as commercial ISVs start supporting more Mono on Linux.
