Binary package hint: monodevelop

I'm starting this bug to help track Monodevelop 2.0.

At this moment in time, the current "stable" upstream release of
Monodevelop is 1.0. This has been the release included in Ubuntu since
Hardy, and it is rather rough around the edges, truth be told. The next
major version, 2.0, has just released its first beta (2.0 beta 1, AKA
1.9.2) which is a significant improvement to usability compared to 1.0.
Beta 1 is upstream's "feature freeze" release, with a second beta due on
March 8th, and the final release due on March 24th, to address bugs.

It would be great to equip Jaunty with this great new release, rather
than the anaemic 1.0 release we've been using for ages (through fear of
random SVN snapshots), but it's possible (or even probable) that 1.9.2
will miss Jaunty FF by a few days, due to assorted other packaging
commitments for the pkg-mono teams.

My Jaunty PPA contains a current pre-release test package, as well as a
required bugfixed mono-addins package
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/330440), and can be enabled at

Preliminary testing shows that this pre-release package is in good
shape, although it won't be uploaded to Debian until *all* of MD2 has
been prepared (plugins in different tarballs, currently only the
Database plugin has not been updated yet - and some plugins will need to
go through NEW).

I'm subscribing motu-release to this bug to help inform about
developments, and possible to help provide background information should
a formal FFe be needed for some or all of MD2. Please go ahead and test
the current package, we're keen to hear about issues.
