Monodevelop version information

Starting up Monodevelop with Alpha channel selected, informs the user that a new update is available to 

If I'm on Alpha channel, this is a downgrade to a stable version and shouldn't be offered. 

Attaching screenshots and version info.

Looking into MonoDevelop's log it makes a request to http://software.xamarin.com/Service/Updates and the information returned includes and despite level=Alpha in the GET request.

Attaching the log info, and a sample of the contents returned.

Result of the call to http://software.xamarin.com/Service/Updates?level=Alpha when made the same parameters as in the short log file

This is intentional, there was a bug in the updater in some recent versions of MD that we could only fix by pushing down to all users. After you install, it should start offering normal updates again, including the alpha.
