Description Joseph Hill 2012-05-28 18:20:12 UTC
In MonoDevelop 3.0.2, create a new C# console project.

On the first line of a new C# file, type:
using System.

System.Linq does not appear in the suggestion list.

However, typing the following compiles okay:
using System.Linq;

It's a known issue - the project system should give the reference.

Known work around: Manually adding the system.core assembly.
Comment 3 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-05-29 12:09:43 UTC
Not convinced this is a bug. If the project doesn't have a reference to System.Core, then you can't reference types from System.Core. This is consistent.

The reason the compile succeeds is that MD implicitly adds a System.Core reference in order for certain C#3+ features to work correctly.
