Mono compatibility

May 24, 2009 at 9:20 PM



I just want to know (I didn't see it in the features list) if DotNetzip works on Mono, and if yes, with  which versions of Mono ?

I don't test DotNetZip on Mono, but I have heard that people run it on Mono, unchanged.  I don't know the versions.

I'll let someone else reply on this.

If you guys come up with a list of versions that work together, I'm happy to post that information.

Is there any recent news on mono compatibility? Cheeso have your heard any other successful usage under mono?

No, I have not heard any recent reports of usage of DotNetZip on Mono.

There are a few calls in the library to Windows-native libraries, that I suppose would fai on Mono.  I'm not an expert on Mono so I'm not certain of this. But even if that's true, I believe these calls should be easily ifdef'd out for a Mono build. 

What's required is a Mono developer - someone who knows mono and is willing to maintain the DotNetZip build for Mono.

Any takers?
