Known Issues in Oxygene 5.1 (April 2012 - May 2012)
The April and May releases introduce support for the Visual Studio 11 Beta and Windows 8 Consumer Preview. With the newer releases of Visual Studio 2012 RC and Windows 8 RP, some of these features have changed, so that the support for Metro in the April and May releases no longer works; the June 2012 release addresses these issues, and the July 2012 release and later round off Metro and Visual Studio 2012 support further. The August 2012 release, (Oxygene 5.2), provides official support for the Visual Studio 2012 RTM and Windows 8 RTM.
Known Issues in Oxygene 5 (Fall 2011, 5.0.29)
Oxygene 5 features a brand new compiler rewritten from scratch, and along with it has seen major architectural changes in the IDE integration for Visual Studio, as well. With such a major effort, it is always possible that new bugs or regressions have crept in, and that features that previously worked have changed in unexpected ways, or even that previously undocumented (or even buggy) behavior has "fixed itself" – breaking code that was based on these behaviors. We would greatly appreciate any feedback on regressions or missing features that you see, so that we can address those issues as soon as possible.
Known problems and regressions in this first release include:
- No support for MonoDevelop. In order to deliver a quality IDE experience in Visual Studio with this release, we have focused our development efforts in Visual Studio, the main IDE that 90% of our users use exclusively. The current release does not include any support for MonoDevelop, but if you have an older version of Oxygene installed with MonoDevelop, upgrading to version 5 or later will leave your existing MonoDevelop install in tact and you can keep using Oxygene 4.0 in MonoDevelop. We have no current plans to bring back MonoDevelop support for Oxygene 5 or later, but we are looking at alternative IDE options for Mac-side use of Oxygene, in the long run.
