Xamarin’s Mono-based products enable .NET developers to use their existing code, libraries and tools (including Visual Studio*), as well as skills in .NET and the C# programming language, to create mobile applications for the industry’s most widely-used mobile devices, including Android*-based smartphones and tablets, iPhone*, iPad* and iPod* Touch.
Xamarin’s development products simplify mobile application development by allowing developers to use .NET and C# to write cross-platform apps that take full advantage of the unique native capabilities of the underlying platform.
Xamarin engineers are already at work on stability improvements and performance optimizations, and maintenance updates will be released to customers imminently. Additionally, a number of major improvements for MonoTouch and Mono for Android, including support for iOS 5, Xcode 4 and Android Honeycomb, will be released in the coming months.
MonoTouch, Mono for Android and Mono Tools for Visual Studio customers will receive support and updates directly from Xamarin for the remainder of their subscription period. Today, Xamarin introduces a priority support option for mobile products. Customers who upgrade to MonoTouch Enterprise Priority and Mono for Android Enterprise Priority will receive access to the priority support queue and a guaranteed response time.
Xamarin will also assume stewardship of the Mono, MonoDevelop and Moonlight open source projects. In addition, the agreement with SUSE ensures current and future SUSE (formerly Novell) customers hosting applications on SUSE Linux Enterprise Mono Extension application server will continue to receive full commercial support for their platform from SUSE, backed by Xamarin.
