Microsoft has open sourced ASP.NET vNext:
This is an entire new web stack that only needs the core of Mono (does not
even use System.Web.dll!).
So these are of course great news, because (a) The core Mono has been in
active development, and (b) that means that Mono's on the server can be
used without all those pesky limitations that have been plaguing us for
So we ran into a couple of limitations in Mono: some classes that they need
are not implemented (I filed a bug, and a couple of Xamarin folks decided
to take on that on their copious spare time) and we have a couple of bugs
on FileSystemWatcher on OSX.
But this is a great time to:
- Get involved with the github.com/aspnet project and submit
contributions that will make the software run on Unix.
- Look into technologies like Owin and Katana (sp?) and help us have a
story that plugs into Unix HTTP servers (the equivalent of our bridge
between Apache and mono: mod_mono, or our Fast CGI bridge to mono).
- Take Mono's new profiling tools and performance counters for a spin
and help us fine tune the runtime to run .NET code faster on Unix than you
can on Windows. While this is a tall order, my friend David Miller would
expect nothing less from us.
Hugs and love,
