Packages dialog won't show - Xamarin Studio 6.0.1

Having been happily coding and adding/maintaining packages, I now find that Xamarin Studio doesn't bring up the Package Management console when I either right-click 'Packages' and then select 'Add Packages...' or select 'Add NuGet Packages...' from the Project menu.

I'm running Xamarin Studio 6.0.1 on OS X Yosemite.

I've tried clearing the Xamarin Studio cache in ~/library/Caches/Xamarin Studio 6.0, but this hasn't helped.

Anyone else experienced this and/or got a solution?

    It sounds like you are hitting this NuGet addin bug. It can be triggered by having multiple solutions open and closing one. Normally you can fix this by closing and re-opening the solution.

    @mattward Thanks - may well be. But I don't think closing / reopening the solution (or restarting XS) worked. I switched to the alpha channel where it's fixed, but other problems (like code indenting whenever I pressed Enter with a word highlighted) forced me to switch back.
