Mono 4.4.1 Release Notes

Release date: 21 Jun 2016

Mono 4.4.1 is a service release for the Mono 4.4 series.

Bug Fixes

  • #41775 - Zip version needed to extract not correct in System.IO.Compression
  • #41782 - [Cycle 7] "System.Net.WebException: Error: NameResolutionFailure" when attempting web requests with certain raw IP addresses
  • #41874 - Reflection throws AmbiguousMatchException when calling GetProperty on a class that inherits from a generic base class.

Changes in the OSX installation package

The Mono package now uses a file in /etc/paths.d for adding the Mono commands to the PATH on OSX, instead of adding symlinks to /usr/local/bin which is in the PATH by default. A side effect of this is that the Mono commands won’t be available in your terminal session right away until you restart it.

If you install Mono in a script or some other automated manner you can run eval $(/usr/libexec/path_helper -s) to reload the PATH changes and make the commands available. We’re looking at integrating this into the installer in a future release.
