The beta-1 release of Umbraco 4.7.2 for mono is now available on github. I am dedicating this release to my uncle Erik Laksberg, with whom I started my computing journey, and who has sadly passed away last night.
The release is fairly stable, and ready for some road testing. If you encounter any issues please submit them on git.
There is one important known issue at this point: Lucene in membership searches do not return anything.Also, there is a mono bug, that will lead to tabs being inserted progressively into any textarea - this is quite annoying but easily fixed in mono itself. However, I am likely to apply a patch for this before we leave the beta phase.
I will add a wiki page that talks about how to set up a site in the near future.
Binaries are not available at the moment, and the solution will only reliably build in debug mode (requires mono > 2.11)
Hope to have a a couple of web sites up and running on Linux / Umbraco in 2-3 weeks time. : )
