Cannot install D language binding to MonoDevelop
December 15
Hi,

I was trying to make Mono-D working according to https://wiki.dlang.org/Mono-D#On_Linux. But D language binding cannot be installed due to unsatisfied dependencies.

The add-in MonoDevelop.D,2.13.4 could not be updated because some of its dependencies are missing or not compatible:
required: MonoDevelop.Ide,5.0, found: MonoDevelop.Ide,7.8.4
required: MonoDevelop.Core,5.0, found: MonoDevelop.Core,7.8.4

does it mean, that Mono-D is not up to date?

thanks

Fanda

Unfortunately the Mono-D repository [1] hasn't been updated in more than 3 years, so I think using Monodevelop for D development is probably not your best bet.
And there should also be a notice about that on the wiki.

Yes.

MonoDevelop has moved on. Its had two going on three major versions since aBothe moved on with life.

It was the best IDE IMO for D at the time (I still have it installed) but have switched to IntelliJ IDEA for D since then.

I've tried updating it, but honestly MonoDevelop's code base is one of the worst I've ever seen. Very few if any comments.
