memory mapping in .NET?

Does .NET support memory mapping and other features of Java NIO (non blocking io, selectors, etc.)?  According to google, this is not supported in 1.1, but how about .NET beta (2.0 is it?).

I am writing a database prototype, and figured .NET would be perfect for it...except the ability to do mmap in managed environment.  Thanks!

If you're looking for an implementation of memory mapped files in .NET look at the "Caching Application Block"  on MSDN.  There is source code in that application block for using memory mapped files.

Hope this helps.
