At last I’ve had some time to fix some problems with the uploaded packages and update pmono to the latest stable mono and the 4.0 version of Monodevelop!
$ apt-get update $ apt-get install pmono-mono pmono-scripts pmono-monodevelop $ pmono monodevelop ... $ source `which pmono` $ mono ./MyProgram.exe
This latest build brings with it gtk-sharp version 3 ( 2.99 ) upon which much of the new monodevelop is built. Monodevelop 4.0 will take a little getting used to due to the removal of the traditional toolbars but once you get past that it really does feel nicer to use. It quickly supplanted MD 3 on my work desktop.
The gtk-sharp2 package is now built against the 2.0 runtime rather than the default of the ‘best’ runtime. This started to mean that gtk-sharp2 was only usable in 4.0 projects or newer, now all 2.0+ projects work fine.
I have also removed some packages from the archive as they no longer build from the tarball sources nor from github so gone now are mono-tools and monodevelop-gdb.
I had some disk space issues on the repository so have temporarily removed the amd64 packages. I’m working on finding a newer host so as to reduce the amount of bandwidth users consume on void.printf.net
