Description Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2011-12-02 09:55:51 UTC
We need to keep previous downloads on the user system as a safety measure in case we introduce regressions in the product, so he can go and install an older version of his code.

We keep having our customers wanting to re-install previous versions of our software, be it beta versions of the Mono framework, MonoDevelop or MonoTouch/Mono for Android. It'd be nice to see this moving forward.

We now keep the downloaded files in the cache directory for 7 days, and older versions can be downloaded from the store page.
