I fixed that last night at around 3 in the morning, so I have no idea
why you were still seeing that at 1 PM today, unless you were viewing a
cached copy.

Of course it would be nice.  Patience would be nice too.  ;-)  The
package providers for Gtk# are all volunteer, so give them a chance. I
am working on a RH8 RPM, but it won't happen tonight, because I need
some sleep after last night's marathon. I talked to alp and the debs
will no doubt be available soon if they aren't already. I don't know if
Daniel or Johannes are planning to provide win32 bins again, but I hope
someone will.

The link you mentioned above (labeled "0.8") on the source tarballs line
is already a link to the source tarball.

A documentation page for the website would be good to have.  Something
that explains how to get monodoc setup to view the new docs, perhaps an
online snapshot of the docs in html format, and of course links to the
tutorials would belong in there too.  If anyone is willing to provide
some websmanship, I will happily add it to the website.  If it's left up
to me, it probably won't happen very soon, unfortunately.
