Add the 'nameof' operator to the keywords list in MonoDevelop so it is available for autocompletion and syntax highlighting.
The "Operator" keywords list could just be changed to:
<Keywords color = "Keyword(Operator)">
Fixed in 6.0
Unfortunately it's not so easy - the nameof operator needs semantic highlighting support :/.
int nameof = 5; is valid and shouldn't be colored.
Ah damn, that is painful.
I didn't realize it was contextual, I thought it was a reserved language keyword :/
Out of curiosity, is 6.0 the release for Roslyn Mike?
yes - the 6.0 release is in internal testing and it looks good.
We're doing atm final polish.
Because of the roslyn work we didn't have full c#6 support in the 5.x line.
We underestimated the roslyn switch a bit.
Sweeet, I can't wait for Roslyn! Been building an analysis and refactoring addin for Xamarin.Android so Roslyn will enable me to make a bunch of very cool things (NRefactory is awesome as well but I can't sink time into it if its being retired).
Thanks again and keep up the good work :D
