Hi all!

The big news this week is that the mingw32 version is all checked into CVS and 
seems to be working reasonably well.  No more hacks are needed to specify 
assembly or plugin directories manually.

The glibc regex code has been integrated into pnet, which ensures that we will 
have uniform regex behaviour across all platforms now.  Regex was also 
integrated into ILCmdLineExpand, so that Win32 platforms have globbing 
performed automatically, without needing any special library assistance from 

Aditya has been working on System.IO, which has been steadily improving with 
each patch.  Good work Aditya.

Gopal has been fixing compiler and runtime bugs in between exams: conversion 
operators, attributes, nested class type gathering, and the infamous "won't 
run csc-compiled Qt#" bug (can we get an update from the Qt# guys as to how 
close we are to fully interoperable now?).  Gopal also integrated the Mono 
System.Text.RegularExpressions library into pnetlib.

I was a bit slack in the latter part of the week, due to work commitments at 
Trolltech.  But I'll be back on board DotGNU for the next two weeks.  
System.Xml is my biggest outstanding issue, followed by pnetC.

We're planning on around mid-Jan for the 0.5.0 release, just before in Perth where I'll be giving a presentation on Portable.NET's 
interpreter to the conference.

We're pretty much on track 0.5.0, but every little bit helps, so keep those 
bugs and patches rolling in.
