Description Alan McGovern 2013-08-08 14:11:13 UTC
If you build monodevelop with xbuild and then try to build using mdtool, every binary is considered to be stale and is rebuilt.

When working on XS on a day to day basis this inconsistency forces me to compile in the terminal using 'make' and avoid building inside MD at all costs. Using xbuild gives significantly faster rebuild times than using MonoDevelop.

Marking as resolved. This feature will not be implemented, as we're actually looking into using MSBuild only.
