I'm looking to use the RSA component in a Xamarin Monotouch App. Can you help me, by choosing the lib? Can I use the .Net or should I write my own wrapper lib using the objective-C lib? I already tried the last approach and did not succeed.

In the coming months, Chilkat will be releasing a download for Mono to support .NET cross-platform. This implementation will provide a pure / managed .NET assembly, which can be reference by an app w/ "Any CPU" as the targeted architecture. However, it will also come with a "functional" DLL/shared-lib (meaning function-based instead of object-oriented class-based) that would need to be distributed alongside the Chilkat Mono assembly. (Which by the way, the functional DLL could be used by C/C++ programs, or programs in other programming languages. For example, just like Win32 Platform SDK functions are callable from VB6.) The Chilkat Mono implementation would provide a single API for platforms including MAC OS X, Linux, Windows, Android, and iOS. That is the current goal.

Thanks for the answer. We are developing Xamarin(Android and iOS) application and are planning to use Chilkat libraries especially socket/ssl.

Whats the timeframe by when you'll go live and we can use your libraries?

Any pre-build/alpha builds which you can share and we can start developing our application using Xamarin tools?

Thank you, Amarjeet

If others would participate in the Forum it would free me up to finish it... New versions are free, and the license extends to all supported operating systems, including new ones, so if others would contribute knowledge to the forum, it would certainly decrease the amount of time it takes to provide new features, support new operating systems, etc..

Thanks for your reply. Does this mean the new currently available version will work on iPhone/Android too? I just saw the supported OS in Zip Component and it mentions iPhone/Android, not sure its native support or Mono.

If it is not currently supported, do you have an approximate timelines as to when we can see them? This will help us plan better.

The current version works on both Android and iPhone, but for Java, C++, and Objective-C -- not for C# (which requires the "Chilkat Mono" release we're all waiting for..)

It's difficult to say when. 2 weeks can easily turn into a month...

PS> For example, a report of an "access violation" was posted on the forum this morning. These kinds of things always take precedence and potentially delay other things. This will be investigated today, the test will be added to the internal QA suite regardless of whether the crash is reproduced or not, and I'll follow up with the user...

Okie, I guess I have to wait for the release then. Thank you for your prompt response!
