I'm quite busy at work ATM but still managed to give the latest Mono release a try on both Linux and MacOS.

As usual things worked absolutely fine on Linux but I had some build problems on my iBook. make install fails with

Unhandled Exception: System.ExecutionEngineException: SIGILL
in (unmanaged) (wrapper managed-to-native) Mono.Tools.Driver:symlink (string,string)
in <0x00088> (wrapper managed-to-native) Mono.Tools.Driver:symlink (string,string)
in <0x00b04> Mono.Tools.Driver:InstallAssembly (string[])
in <0x007f4> Mono.Tools.Driver:Run (string[])
in <0x0005c> Mono.Tools.Driver:Main (string[])

The resulting partial installation is usable enough for my little Ant tasklib and for the first time ever I successfully ran NAnt's <echo> task on a Mac. Time to give something serious a try, when I find time.

I'm really impressed how far Mono for PPC and in particular for OS X has come since I first tried it (0.28, about seven months ago).
