If you create a brand new C# MonoMac Solution with MD 3.0.2, from the very start you are given the Configuration option of "App Store" along with Debug and Release. But if you originally created your solution using MD 2.8 and you try to open it using MD 3.0.2 you will not have that "App Store" configuration option. I suppose a work around is to create a brand new solution with MD 3.0.2 then copy all your files to the new project, but that can get very tedious if you have a project with tons of folders and files in each one that need to be set to "Build as Content". Thanks.

This is something we probably don't want to be doing, since it's hard to know if the user may have explicitly deleted that profile, renamed it, etc.

It also gets messy because we'd have to create solution configurations.

If you'd like to create an AppStore configuration for your project(s), simply clone your Release configuration and make the following changes:

- Enable "include the Mono runtime"
- Enable code-signing
- Set your code-signing key
- Enable packaging
- Enable package signing
- Set your package-signing key
