Wow, absolutely amazing!

I've got a project waiting to be ported to Android, so I'll be right there to put it to use once you release it to the master.

Keep it up! :)

Can you please post a quick HOWTO to get up and running (both on how to get the phone ready and how to get the IDE going)?

I love it. Can't wait to start using it. That is.. will you be releasing it?

I'm running into a issue where Mono's GC (Boehm) can't suspend anything but the main thread when garbage collecting. This breaks stuff... I need to fix this first, then I'll have something usable.

GhostInAK said...

Let us know if we can help.

Once we get a working system, one thing we need to think about is how to dynamically update the mono binaries from within an installed app - I'm thinking that we'd have some sort of monoandroid "package" format, and then the user can enter a URL to a package they built (local network or over the internet), to replace/update the mono binaries. This would allow commercial mono-based apps to comply with the LGPL.

What all do we need to install the MonoDevelop.Android plugin once we get it to build? I've done the following:

created ~/.androidmono directory

created ~/.androidmono/config.xml with AndroidSDK and Ant tags defined (I just wrote a file out using an XmlSerializer).

created ~/.config/MonoDevelop/addins directory with the following contents:
MonoDevelop.Android.dll
MonoDevelop.Android.dll.mdb
MonoDevelop.Debugger.Soft.Android.dll
MonoDevelop.Debugger.Soft.Android.dll.mdb

Set the ANDROID_SDK environment variable to my android SDK path.

It looks like it needs com.koushikdutta.monojavabridge.jar in .androidmono but I couldn't find where that was built.

I would love to start using this. It would be great to have the steps needed to get this working written some where.

If you need help, alpha/beta tester, or anything, just ask.
