Monodevelop Update

Hi all.

Does anyone know why the monodevelop package does not get updated? It was flagged out of date in May and should currently be version 3.0.3. There are also some cool new features that seem quite helpful for developing with C#.

This might be a stupid question but I don't know where to find the reasoning for the decision to keep monodevelop on 2.8. Is there some general place where package upgrades are discussed?

Looking forward for the update ;)
Thomas.

Re: Monodevelop Update

Ask the maintainer?
After all, the latest git commit dates from 2012-04-06.


To know or not to know ...
... the questions remain forever.

That is a very good idea. I thought about it but was not sure if I could just bug him.

So I will ask the maintainer directly and post his reply here.

Re: Monodevelop Update

Did the maintainer ever get back to you on this?

Re: Monodevelop Update

The maintainer is busy in real life. Is the update a simple pkgver bump? Then I could do this for you.

Seems to work. I don't actually use monodevelop so I can't confirm anything more than it gets packaged and it runs.

Re: Monodevelop Update

Thanks for updating!

On a side note, I ran into issues debugging an old asp.net mvc project after the upgrade, where xsp would not launch and I could not debug. I was having the same issues when running the project in monodevelop built from source, so I don't think there's anything the arch devs could do. Just in case someone else runs into this problem, it seems that deleting the .userprefs file for the solution fixes the issue and allows xsp to launch again.

Thank you very much for the update. I used it and for me it seems to work flawlessly.

Re: Monodevelop Update

I really want to get rid of my winblows xp boot partition but my college curriculum won't let me. We have this subject that uses VB so when will drag and drop implemented in Mono?
