More ASP.Net 2.0 features missing from Mono 1.1.13.4

After stripping out the SiteMap Provider, Membership Provider, and Role Provider, I discovered a few more ASP.Net 2.0 features that are missing from Mono 1.1.13.4:

  1. System.Web.UI.WebControls.BulletedList:Render is not implemented. That seems like an easy place for me to learn Mono hacking! We’ll see what happens…
  2. meta:resourcekey attributes aren’t recognized which seems strange to me since usually open source projects have excellent I18N and L10N support.
  3. And another showstopper: Mono/XSP2 doesn’t seem to support automatically loading/compiling files from App_Code. I kind of suspected this was some magic on Visual Studio’s part, but hopefully its something Mono can still implement.
