Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-11-14 14:45:57 UTC
Xamarin Studio should require the MDK instead of the MRE to prevent confusion about things like missing PCL reference assemblies.
Comment 1 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2014-02-25 20:22:00 UTC
We should merge the MRE updater channel into the MDK update channel, then we can simply check for the MDK at IDE startup.
