Yes - the next release of the Open Vision suite will be distributed as portable libraries. The NOV framework and all heavy components in the suite will be inside portable class libraries, so your code that depends on NOV can be a portable class library too. This means that the redistribution of your application can be significantly optimized, since you will just have to copy the portable .dlls to your Mac or Silverlight project in order for it to run.
The hosts cannot be implemented as portable class libraries, since NOV needs to at some point integrate with already existing presentation layer APIs on Windows, Mac, Silverlight etc.
The next release will be available very soon (in a matter of weeks) with hopefully a beta version of the new Scheduler and Chart components.
