Minutes ago I updated xamarin studio automatically but now it doesn't start because it says it requires at least os x mavericks. I am on mountain lion. The software should upgrade automatically like that only if it makes sense. Now I have to downgrade manually... . By the way, I do require Xamarin to work on Mountain Lion. There is specific behavior which requires debugging on Mountain Lion.

I have checked this issue and able to reproduce this. I observed that I am also able to upgrade the Xamarin Studio to XS 5.9.x.x. version on Mountain Lion however this version is not supportable by Mountain Lion. And user is not able to open XS because this version requires at least OS X Mavericks.

Hence I am marking this issue and confirmed and as enhancement.
