Modevelop 1.0 released

This is a really important mile stone for mono project.

After a few years in the oven, we are ready to announce the first release of MonoDevelop. Lluis has put together a set of in-depth release notes that covers the major features available in MonoDevelop and links to various tutorials and screencasts as well as extensive screenshots of what is available in MonoDevelop 1.0.

MonoDevelop 1.0 is designed mostly for Linux developers creating Gnome and ASP.NET applications but MonoDevelop is also available for MacOS users that download our Mono installer and will still be useful if they are building Mono-based applications on OSX.

The IDE has many of the features that you would expect from a modern IDE for Mono: support for programming in multiple languages, an extensible design, editors and designers for ASP.NET and Gnome applications, integration with Unix toolchains and Visual Studio Solutions, support for source code control and following standard Unix development practices, integrated NUnit testing, Unix Packaging and Deployment (following the GNU conventions, and Mono conventions) for libraries and packages), internationalization and localization, tools to maintain your project documentation and command line tools to access this functionality.

Cartoon of prophet

Danish newspapers again published again cartoon of Prophet Mohammad (peace upon him).

They call it "freedom of speech". I don't understand there definition freedom. As much as I know freedom means to do any thing without hurting anybody.
Cartoon is an art to entertain the people. It is very creative thing. But they used it do the destructive thing. How bad their mentality is.

Mono/Qt and Nokia/Trolltech

I used to do some Qt/C++ development few years back. Qt4 has grown very much since than.

It think it is very difficult to integrate Qt designer in Monodevelop
which is Gtk based. I never seen an GTk application which host Qt/Kde
controls and vice - versa.

Now Trolltech is part of now part of Nokia. Nokia is very much
interested in Mono. They have ported mono to their mobile platform.

I think we should Nokia/Trolltech guys for either start a project
similar to QtJambi (Qt for java) or something like that. Both mono and
Qt are crucial for Nokia. I expect they will come up some thing soon.

One thing I am worrying that how much priority they will give to desktop.
Lets see.
