      Linux update :
      Uv. kekekeks conjured, and conjured a small auto-coil monitoring their git repository. In his ppa you can always get the latest build for Ubuntu and Debian. This package is called monodevelop-latest. They will also periodically collect snapshots that they post for download. Integration with NUnit, it seems, wound up. If something does not start or someone needs some plug-in that is not included in the assembly - kick kekekeks :)
      (thank him)
    • When you open existing projects, the project files will be converted for compatibility with the new version of the environment
