Today I upgraded from 4.0.1 to 4.0.2, but I'm curious what's new/fixed... are there some release notes somewhere?

    There aren't published release notes yet, but here's some of the notable changes:

    • Syntax scheme dialog can import Visual Studio .NET (.vssetting) files
    • Semantic syntax highlighting is more granular, e.g method usage vs. definition
    • Loading time of large solutions has been improved
    • Startup time has been improved
    • MacOS Lion fullscreen is supported
    • The device chooser now shows the name of the target iOS device
    • Specific iOS devices can be targeted, if more than one are attached
    • Some crashes in SVN integration have been fixed
    • Errors in conditional breakpoint expressions are reported to the debugger output
    • Fixed an issue where the debugger would not catch certain unhandled exceptions
    • Code folding in very large files is much faster
    • The debugger expression evaluator has been made more reliable
    • Autogenerated doc comments can be undone without removing the tags
    • The Xamarin.Mac Info.plist editor has been improved
    • The Info.plist editors are shown as document subviews, not as a notebook
    • Fixes in code completion, semantic highlighting and source analysis
    • Android device names are better formatted in the device picker dialog
    • The duplicated scrollbar when using source analysis has been removed

    Thanks Mike.

    As the risk of beating my own drum, any time frame on the bugs listed below. I'm sure everyone has their own list of pet peeves, but these are consistently affecting productivity.

    No timeframe for a release, sorry. We have people looking into those issues but after they're fixed it takes time to get through the QA/release process and make sure we don't break other things.

    Thanks Mike. Great to know someone is looking into it.
