MonoDevelop text editor prior to 4.0

Just found two random pics via google to show the difference.
I mean that one saying "ln 1 col 1 ch 1".

Was a design decision to remove that - we've spoken about that internally.

The line numbers highlight the current line. Why you need the line/column information?

Ok, got it, thanks.
I can't say right now but I've just caught myself up a couple of times thinking that it might be useful to see the caret position.
If I come up with some good points on it I'll update this bug.

Let us know if we 'streamlined' too much :)

If you look at the toolbars you'll notice that most buttons are gone now as well.
