In master, monodevelop does not show any comments for BCL-types.
For types in the same solution it works.


void Test()
  System.Text.StringBuilder builder; builder.Append( // Tooltip shows up, but contains no docu.

Broken again in master.


void Test()
  System.Text.StringBuilder builder; builder.Append( // Tooltip shows up, but without documentation.

fixed - I've improved the overload selection for that, but doing so broke overload selection for primitive types.

It should now work & show always the doc for the correct overload.
