Monodevelop version information
Starting up Monodevelop 22.214.171.124 with Alpha channel selected, informs the user that a new update is available to 126.96.36.199.
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 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 despite level=Alpha in the GET request.
Attaching the log info, and a sample of the contents returned.

This is intentional, there was a bug in the updater in some recent versions of MD that we could only fix by pushing down 220.127.116.11 to all users. After you install 18.104.22.168, it should start offering normal updates again, including the 22.214.171.124 alpha.
