Registered by Dylan Borg

A programming language for Microsoft .NET and Xamarin Mono. The new compiler is self-hosting and uses IKVM.NET reflection (with emit) as a codegen system.

dylan.NET is a programming language still in its infancy, trying to make .NET programming more available to linux and windows (even Mac OS/X) based systems. The goal is to have a command line compiler that does NOT need fancy IDEs in order to provide great functionality.

Even if the new dylan.NET is still under development, its API libraries and its compiler driver can be tried and tested for errors. The more people try them, the more stable the system can be(via bug reporting). Anyone wishing to give a hand in testing dylan.NET can contact
