Hi, Rafael.  You should post monodoc-related patches to mono-docs-list.

Not bad.

The providers are all compiled into monodoc 'statically', so the user 
has no control over it.  I don't think we need to list them.

Miguel needs to chime in with how he would want monodoc to be versioned.

Also, it would be nice to display the monodoc version more prominently, 
instead of just in the list of loaded assemblies.

Please don't disable my features. :)

Why this?

You can just delete that class and any Glade stuff it has, if any.

Again, I don't think this was necessary.

Thanks for working on updating the about dialog.  Can you fix the issues 
I noted, add a ChangeLog, and then repost the patch on mono-docs-list?
