Following a long established tradition of doing a quick
Mono update after we do a major release,
Mono 2.10.1 to the world.
There are four big features in this release that we
backported from our master branch in addition to some 25 fresh
- Support for
on Linux. We also wrote a PostgreSQL backend for
it. You can find the patches
- The Parallel Framework's Default task scheduler
has been switched to use our new and improved internal
threadpool that we introduced with Mono 2.10.
Previously it used its own (and amazing) scheduler,
but did not share the same properties as .NET as there
were by default two active threadpools, now there is
- Plenty of updates to the WCF stack.
- OSX is a fast growing OS for Mono, this release
brings performance counters for OSX as well as adding
debugging symbols to all of our libraries if you
install the CSDK package from our download page.
There were also three important regressions from Mono 2.8
that have been fixed. We encourage everyone to use Mono 2.10.1.
