I've been dev'ing a long time with MonoTouch, etc. so I'm not new and my configurations haven't changed for release, dev, ad-hoc, etc. Today is the first day I uploaded a build to my iPhone for testing using Release/iPhone which is a Dev cert, not ad-hoc.
When choosing the Run/Upload to Device I kept getting an error about something wrong with the provisioning/signing. For whatever reason the Entitlements.plist shows up in the Release/iPhone build when it was only previously in the Release/Ad-Hoc build.
Not sure how/why - it may affect others.
Can you test out http://files.xamarin.com/~jeff/MonoDevelop-3.0.1js2.dmg and see if that solves it for you?
this has been reported as fixed by a number of other people now
I know others are reporting empty arrays in their Entitlements.plist, while I have not tried your updated build, my issue is that the "Entitlements.plist" is appearing in configurations it shouldn't and I have to clear it. I reported this issue as seeing it in Release/iPhone, now I'm working in Debug/iPhone and see that Entitlements.plist has appeared in that config as well. In MD 2.8.x it was only in the Ad-Hoc config. You may want to see if there is some reason this .plist is showing up in other build/solution configs.
Toggling the entitlements in the plist editor adds the Entitlements.plist to all configurations that do not have entitlements already set. This should not change anything unless you toggle that checkbox, and having the plist in all configurations should not cause problems. Is it causing problems for you?
I cannot get a successful build/install with Entitlements.plist included. I remove it and all works fine in my deployment to my test devices.
It what way is it unsuccessful? What entitlements do you have?
This is my Entitlements.plist for ad-hoc only per the old docs on your web site:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
Says use in ad-hoc configuration only, in MD 3 this is used in all my configs now for some reason. Wasn't there in 18.104.22.168.
Neal: this should be fixed in 3.0.2 and here's why:
in 3.0.1, when you opened the Application project options, the code used to scan all configurations to see if any of them referenced a file called Entitlements.plist. If any of them did, it would toggle the "Enable Entitlements" checkbox which would then invoke a callback which then scanned over all configurations, setting *all* empty values to Entitlements.plist (which is what happened to you).
I've fixed it in 3.0.2 so that during that initialization phase, it will not cause the toggle callback to set any values.
In other words, I prevented the domino effect caused by initializing the checkbox to the initial state.
