Xamarin Studio 4.1.7, OSX
Put the mouse over a variable. No hover text appears telling you the type.
This worked before the 4.1.7 alpha release.
I believe Its fixed in the main repo: https://github.com/fsharp/fsharpbinding
You should raise issues to the Github repo, its open source and not owned by Xamarin.
I should probably do both. Part of the reason for filing here is that I'd like Xamarin to be adding F# items to their list of "things that must work before you can ship an alpha" - whether or not the fix is upstream in the github repo shouldn't shouldn't matter for the release/don'tRelease decision.
Plus it's not always clear to me exactly which components are causing any particular problem, so starting with a Xamarin bug seems reasonable. (I may feel that way just because we gave them money...)
Fixed as per #C1
