Mono is an open source implementation of
the Common Language Infrastructure which runs on various platforms,
including Windows, Linux and OS X.
Noda Time runs on Mono, but with some limitations:
- Noda Time is not developed on Mono, so while releases will be tested
against it (running all the unit tests), code which isn't part
of a release may not work. Please raise an issue on the
tracker page if
you come across a breakage like this, and we'll fix it as soon
TimeZoneInfo in Mono has some critical flaws in the latest stable
Mono release at the time of this writing (2.10.8) - while
do the right thing, it may disagree with the results of calling

- Some cultures in Mono have standard date/time patterns which
use the abbreviated am/pm designator, but have am/pm designators
which are the same when abbreviated. In these cases, parsing
The prebuilt binary packages can be used on Mono directly. To build from source,
