Support for the ASP.NET AJAX APIs and controls. FastCGI for ASP.NET.
Windows.Forms now supports the WebControl on Windows and Linux using Mozilla.
Runtime will now consume much less memory for 2.0-based applications due to various optimizations in generics support as well as including many new performance improvements and an updated verifier and an implementation of CoreCLR security.
C# compiler is quickly approaching full 3.0 support, most of the basics work right now (except support for System.Query.Expression AST generation).
Mono 1.2.6 can now be used as an SDK for creating Silverlight 1.1 applications on all platforms.
