Mono developers form new company

rantomaniac (1876228) writes "Miguel de Icaza announced today the formation of a new company, Xamarin, to continue Mono development after his team was laid off recently by Attachmate. The copyrights to the iPhone and Android ports of Mono remain at Attachmate, but that didn't discourage Xamarin from planning to redevelop those components as proprietary software again. Miguel writes:

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.
