Miguel de Icaza reports
on Microsoft applying its "Community Promise
" to C# and the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI). This means that Microsoft will not assert its patents against the Ecma and ISO standard portions of Mono (and other implementations of those standards). "Astute readers will point out that Mono contains much more than the ECMA standards, and they will be correct.
In the next few months we will be working towards splitting the jumbo Mono source code that includes ECMA + A lot more into two separate source code distributions. One will be ECMA, the other will contain our implementation of ASP.NET, ADO.NET, Winforms and others.
