MonoDevelop 2.6 brings new features
Version 2.6 of MonoDevelop has been released. The new version of the open source Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for programming in C# and other .NET languages adds support for the Git version control system, as well as improved version control views and a new window to quickly resolve conflicts.
MonoDevelop 2.6 includes support for .NET 4.0 projects, a rewritten C# parser that's based on the MCS compiler and a new Add Folder to Project command. Using the MonoMac add-in, available in the add-in manager, developers can create, test and package native Cocoa applications. Other changes include improved compatibility with Visual Studio projects, better support for XBuild and a new add-in manager window. Rudimentary project support for Objective C and a new C# formatting options dialogue have also been added.
More details about the release, including a full list of changes, can be found on the What's new in MonoDevelop 2.6 page and in the release notes. MonoDevelop 2.6 is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X, openSUSE, Debian and Ubuntu from the project's site; Mono 2.10.4 and GTK# 2.12.8 or later are required. Hosted on GitHub, MonoDevelop is licensed under the LGPLv2 and MIT-X11 licenses.
