Ok, I will keep that in mind when testing the gtk# 2.10 installers

So that was intended... 
I agree that 2.4 is old but there are at least 2 reasons still to ship
a) official gtk# does, why break compatibility with it?
b) the gtk# installer from Paco was long time gtk# 2.4 only, so anyone
who wanted to transition to gtk# 2.8 could not just replace the
installer but also needs to rebuild all assemblies.

Ok, thanks :)

Will see how our applications work. I will give feedback when I tested
