[Mono-aspnet-list] Mono3, Monodevelop4, ASP.NET versions 3.0, 4.0, 4.5 and all the confusion

Like this post on StackOverflow shows, it's very difficult to run an ASP.NET
application with mono v3.


Seems like a link is broken somewhere making everything run on older
versions and not 4.0 or 4.4.
This causes web apps to fail since they expect new functionality in v4.x
which is not found when older runtimes are substituted.

In my case (Debian Jessie) the MySQL connector give this error:


Method not found:


at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection..ctor (System.String
connectionString) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0

at (wrapper remoting-invoke-with-check)
MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection:.ctor (string)

at CreateWriteConnection () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0

This is not surprising since System.Threading.Monitor.Enter came with v4.x.

Is there a workaround for this?

Or do we need a new bugfix release from the devs?
