The news feed ("Xamarin News") links all the feed entries to each actual blog entry but when I clicked any, it does not navigate to the page. (links in other apps, say, thunderbird, works, so I don't think it is an issue in my environment.)

Most likely a problem in the Gnome.Url.Show(string) call is the GnomePlatform. What linux is this? Do any web links in MD work, e.g. in the help menu?

Indeed it's likely broken elsewhere. I'm not sure if this is the case, but "This documentation is part of the Mono Project." link (to mono website) on Help pages are not working, just showing the link text in the window.

It is ubuntu 11.10 and gnome-desktop-2.0 is 2.32.1.

Now I only have 12.04, where it works fine. I assume it's working in 11.10 too.
