MonoDevelop screen shot with unbelievable content
I am keeping an eye on Mono and MonoDevelop pages from time to time to see what is new. When you do a search for MonoDevelop roadmap on Google, you hit this page right at the top: http://monodevelop.com/Developers/Roadmap. The URL looks good, but the content suggests that the only relevant data is that Mono2.4 is released in 2010. This does NOT look good for MonoDevelop image. Choose "Features By Release" (http://monodevelop.com/Developers/Roadmap/Features_by_Release)
and it seems nothing has been done on MonoDevelop 2.8 yet.
When you install MonoDevelop from Ubuntu 12.04 repository, you get a surprise on the welcome screen. Just to double check that my eyes are not taking me for a ride, I opened the Help/About dialog. I made a print screen - see if you can pick up the somewhat obvious problem from the attachment. Ok, that might be a bit difficult, so let my guide you in the right direction. On the "About" dialog is the MonoDevelop version given as 126.96.36.199. Yet, news links points to "MonoDevelop 2.6 Beta 1 Released" and "MonoDevelop 2.6 Beta 2 Released".
To be honest, I get the impression there is not much going for Mono or MonoDevelop. If you do not take the time to improve your public image through what seems to be the official MonoDevelop web page, how can you expect developers to take you serious? Really - this is BAD customer's relations.
ugh, yea... I think the problem was that MonoDevelop 2.8.x got the news feed from some Novell location
3.0.x doesn't have this problem, though.
