As the title says, I have recently noticed a new folder appearing in my solution folder - fontconfig. It contains about a dozen .cache-3 files, and I don't know what it is for, what it does, and why, after 8-9 months of using Xamarin Studio, it has started appearing just over a week ago. All I know is that it is making source control a nuisance (since git doesn't seem to want to ignore the damn folder).
The company I am currently with uses Xamarin Studio solely for ASP.NET development. Because of ongoing bugs with the Markup parser within Xamarin, we are mainly using first iterations of 4.0. Xamarin Studio itself is running on Mono 3.4.0 (installed start of the month), while our ASP.NET site is currently running on 2.10.9 (pending stable release of 3.4.0 for Ubuntu).
Most of our dev machines are Windows, with a few Ubuntu boxes and a single Mac which I am currently using.
Can anyone share any information as to what the fontconfig is, and why it has only just recently started showing up in our solution folder, and how to stop Xamarin from regenerating it each time I do a build so I no longer need to keep removing it from Git?
