Portable.NET 0.6.6 has been released:

Web Page:

This release marks a big milestone for DotGNU.  It is the first release
where the bulk of the work was done by contributors other than myself,
as I was on sabbatical writing libjit for most of the time.

Fantastic work guys!  Major strides have been made in threading, Winforms,
System.Xml, ml-pnet, DCOP, serialization, and many, many, other places.
The NEWS files below list everyone's name (hopefully I didn't forget
anyone).  Keep up the good work!

I am going to ease back into pnet development over the next month,
particularly on ilrun issues leading up to the libjit integration.
But don't let this stop you: there is still plenty of work to be done
all across Portable.NET.

NEWS entries and signed MD5 checksums for the above files are appended
to this message.
