I finally got around to testing the new release of SlickUpload on my new Suse 9.1 test machine running mono 1.0.5
Sorry to say, but as I expected it doesn't work. It doesn't raise any errors but it doesn't upload the file.
See my previous post for the reasons I believe it doesn't work. Its not a problem with SlickUpload, its a lack of implementation in mono for functionality that exists in the ASP.NET/IIS stack.
It is possible that new functionality is available in the mono 1.1.x development branch that may make it into the next release build of mono (I'm doubtful but trying to be optimistic). Sometime in the near future I plan to setup another test machine and getting frequent updates of the mono 1.1 branch using subversion and doing the builds myself so I can stay on top of the newest features. It seems from the mailing list that a lot of times when people report bugs the answer is that its fixed in the latest code if you get it from the subversion repository. I think you almost have to be using daily builds to report bugs effectively. I'l post on this topic again after I get setup for doing builds from subversion. It will be a good learning opportunity for me.
Got an e-mail from Chris Hynes that gives me more hope that this is working in the developer branch. More motivation to learn how to build mono from svn.
