I'm running 2.8.0 because 2.8.1 has a deal-breaker bug (1659). However every time I run MD, it nags me to update to 2.8.1.

This also happens for alpha and beta builds. When I wanted the beta iOS5 builds, it kept nagging me to install beta MD and Mono builds.


I should be able to select individual updates and "Skip This Update".

This is definitely annoying and should be something we look into fixing.

You can now choose individual updates to install, though you cannot ignore individual updates - that would introduce complexities re. getting them back, etc.
