New Development Snapshot

While the 0.42 release is still baking, a new development snapshot is available.

Changes:

  • Nat worked on clipboard and drag-and-drop support.
  • Volker worked on print support.
  • Various awt fixes/improvements.
  • Code cleanup/refactoring to prepare for IKVM.Reflection (replacement of IKVM.Reflection.Emit).
  • Fixed ikvmstub to ignore private interfaces.
  • Removed .NET 4.0 beta 1 workarounds.
  • Simplified the obj1.getClass() == obj2.getClass() intrinsic to avoid requiring full trust on .NET 4.0.
  • Optimized field reflection. We now delay creating the dynamic methods to access the field until after the field has been accessed a couple of times, this saves a lot of memory for fields that are only usused a few times.
  • Added -publicpackage:<pkg> option to ikvmc. Contributed by Eyal Alaluf of Mainsoft.
  • Added public API to get ClassLoader from Assembly.
  • Added (optional) per-module initialization to custom assembly class loaders.
  • Added ikvmc option -nopeercrossreference and the ability to use -r with peer assemblies.

Binaries available here: ikvmbin-0.43.3595.zip
