There's no out of the box way at the moment to have multiple windows of Xamarin Studio.
I've come across some launch scripts (open -n /Applications/MonoDevelop.app) that let me create multiple instances though, which is almost good enough, but it would be quite good to be able to have multiple windows working properly.
If its not clear what I mean with this, I can give this analogy:
If I have 2 projects open with XCode, and I press cmd + tab, i can see 1 XCode icon.
When I want to change between these two projects quickly, I can press cmd+`,
or swipe downwards with 4 fingers to show the App Expose (not mission control!)
Currently, with the previously mentioned launch script, with regard to Xamarin Studio, when I press cmd+tab,
I see 2 Xamarin Studio icons. And when I swipe downwards with 4 fingers in 1 of those icons, only 1 window appears.
As it stands though, its a bit cumbersome and non-mac like to work with :)
Let me know if anything is unclear.
