Vault + Mono = Linux Support

I don’t pretend to be on top of all the work done in the Mono world, but this strikes me as being the first comercial application that:

1. is advertising that it supports running on Mono

2. has gone through the work to test on Mono,

and I suspect,

3. has probably worked w/ getting fixes in Mono in order to allow it to run properly.

I think this is a cool milestone for the whole Mono effort.

    Is there a certification process for runtimes that meet the specifications? Does the ECMA/ISO rubberstamp tools to ensure they actually do perform to spec?

    Is there a set of tools we can run to test conformity?

  2. Matt Powell says:

    I suspect there are none of these but as I know very little about Mono, I also know very little about ECMA/ISO’s spec processes around the runtime and C#.

    If you want to see it happen though, having more apps that do what Vault did I’m sure would only help the process.

    Hey there,

    I failed to update you on this earlier. Sourcegear actually contracted Ximian to get Mono up to spec to support this.

    I think they did the community a great favor.
