It would be nice to have the option to use the updater to pick certain items from the updater, so you could select the stable channel but only install Mono 2.10.8 from it and select the alpha channel to get MonoDevelop 2.9.1. At the moment it's all or nothing with a certain channel.

We're not going to support mixed/partial configurations, it adds complexity and makes it easier to end up with an unsupported configuration.

This feature is currently possible on Mac but not on Windows.
