Follow-up to Bug 56787: "Mono.Debugging.VisualStudio" extension is not yet up-to-date in upstream VS 2017 installer manifest

This is a tracking bug to follow the status of the inclusion of Mono.Debugging.VisualStudio version 1.0.57 or higher into the VS 2017 installer manifest.

One consequence of this issue is that the candidate fix for Bug 56787 is not installed into the required location in the "Mono.Debugging" extension folder in the latest VS 2017 update, so users are still hitting Bug 56787.

## Note to the Xamarin team

This bug is a bit different from non-public Bug 57362.  In this case, it seems that the most recent Visual Studio 2017 installer manifest simply has not yet been updated to include the latest version of the "Mono.Debugging.VisualStudio" extension.  The current released versions of the Mono.Debugging extension all have "good" version numbers of "1.0.55" or lower, so the issue in non-public Bug 57362 is not relevant.

## Steps followed to test

Install VS 2017 version 15.2 (26430.13).

## Example results

### BAD for a new VS 2017 install

Mono.Debugging.VisualStudio version [1]
Installed: 1.0.55
Expected:  1.0.57

### BAD after updating from VS 2017 version 15.1 (26403.3) with XamarinVS (3f99c5a)

Mono.Debugging.VisualStudio version [1]
Before:   1.0.39
After:    1.0.55
Expected: 1.0.57

[1] From:
> C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Mono.Debugging\extension.vsixmanifest
