Reading the OsNews "article" on stetic I noticed someone posted that MonoDevelop had stalled and things like completion didn't work very well. Well neither is really true anymore.

Since 0.5.1 almost all know code-completion bugs have been fixed. If you have C# code that you think should be completing but isn't please file a bug with a small example. We also fixed many of our non-wishlist or feature request bugs. These will be in our 0.6 release.

I posted what I know to not work at the MonoDevelop list. A recap:

Things I know about:

  • C# 2 features will likely mess up completion
  • enter/double-click should complete
  • 0xdead type numbers are not parsed correctly (because of code that depends on an apparent .net 1.1 bug)

If no serious bugs come up with completion, I plan to start looking into adding C# 2 support to the parser which could involve going a few different directions.

Since 0.6 was branched, I have mostly finished the C# port of the docking widget and we have enabled that. This should make building simpler, and will allow us to be self-hosting.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
