Description googlly.element109 2011-09-13 15:40:58 UTC
On OSX Lion

1. download monomac 0.7 package by clicking the download button on the github(I realized these packages were out of date after the fact)

2. unzip the file, open Monodevelop Select File->Open menu

3. Pick one of the sample project solution files, Monodevelop freezes

If you navigate in finder to another one of the sample projects and double click the solution file: a dialog from the OS appears with a message "this came from the internet are you sure you want to open it" if you say yes monodevelop opens the project solution normally.

I tried this with other samples I found elsewhere on the internet as well.

Should be fixed in more recent versions.
