Subject Re: new public key for 1.2.10?
Date Fri, 04 Aug 2006 15:03:11 GMT
Hi Nicko,

Any answer on when the "unoffical" build of 1.2.10 will be released with the
same public key token as 1.2.9?  It is holding up a project that I am
working on which uses NHibernate (NHibernate uses 1.2.9).

Thanks!
Sean
