MonoDevelop UI screen shot
I just updated to version 2.8 of MonoDevelop and now all fonts in the UI are just little boxes. I believe I was on the latest beta prior to this upgrade and all was working as expected.
I have already deleted and reinstalled and the problem persists.
I'm guessing it is a missing font of some kind that has changed with the released version however no clue what that is nor how I could change it since none of the menus are readable.

This is a bug in Mono's GTK binaries. Please update Mono to 2.10.6.

MonoDevelop log showing error with font
I'm wondering if changes related to Bug # 830 somehow made it into trunk and were included in the build I got? Seems strange the bug was updated the same day as the release of 2.8 and I have this problem :)
I hope this helps and I look forward to getting back up and running.
Sorry, I didn't see your response before sending my update. I'll try that right away.
Thanks for the incredible response time.
I just checked the web site and 2.10.5 is the latest stable build. Will I need to build it from source then?
I'm not sure why it's not on the website. it's in the MonoDevelop updater, and you can infer the download URL from the 2.10.5 URL.
Was able to download 2.10.6 via the following link:
It is now working as expected.
