Microsoft tests improve Mono
In a blog entry, Mono's chief developer and project initiator, Miguel de Icaza, advises that the code quality of the Mono project has improved considerably in the past few months. According to the blog, this is as a result of Microsoft making a suite for testing the Silverlight framework available to the developers. Icaza said the tests exposed many bugs in Mono and highlighted a number of missing features.
Until now, almost all new versions of the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR) of projects like IronPython and IronRuby have exposed missing functionality in Mono because they intensively use the
Reflection.Emit namespace. Many DLR compilers use its methods for runtime code generation.
