Completing2.0Profile

These are the classes that need work to complete the 2.0 profile. This doesn't include MonoTODOs or extra API that we need to conceal, just missing items. I've also ignored any [Obsolete], [DebuggerDisplay], [DebuggerTypeProxy], [ComImport] and [ComVisible] attributes we need to apply, as they are just noise at this time.

Runtime

Important bugs that must be fixed before we are ok with the 2.0 support:

Would be nice to fix, but are not show-stoppers:

Currently no plan to implement:

  • PerformanceCounter and related types in System.Diagnostics.
  • Full Windows-like EventLog support, such as access to non-local machines.
  • System.Security.Cryptography.Pkcs support (actually in System.Security.dll)
  • ACL (System.Security.AccessControl namespace).

    • DataSetSchemaImporterExtension
    • DataSet (probably) support for importing and exporting annotated xsd files. The annotation format is not really documented anywhere, so it's a hard task, but a lot of ASP.NET 2.0 applications use xsd files which take advantage of the feature (I believe it is created by the VS2005 designers).

ASP.NET

Marek has been using the various reference and Quick start materials from the Microsoft web site and ported a handful of 2.0 applications to ensure that our support is sufficient.

Necessary:

  • Nothing major API-wise that am aware of, other than bug fixes at this point.

Would be nice to have, but is not necessary:

  • .browser format parsing support, to be able to use control adapters (MojoPortal makes a use of those)
  • Support for pre-compiled web sites.
  • Support for precompiling web sites.

Windows.Forms

What we are still missing in Windows.Forms is tracked at Winforms 2.0.
