From today's long-awaited Mono announcement:
Today we start Xamarin, our new company focused on Mono-based products.-- Miguel de Icaza
These are some of the things that we will be doing at Xamarin:
- Build a new commercial .NET offering for iOS
- Build a new commercial .NET offering for Android
- Continue to contribute, maintain and develop the open source Mono and Moonlight components.
- Explore the Moonlight opportunities in the mobile space and the Mac appstore.
I'm glad to see that the Mono team was able to get back on their feet so quickly, and that their new products will be source-compatible with MonoTouch and Mono for Android - too bad they couldn't keep the rights to those products as well. Do yourself a favor and read the whole release.
