This is such a big moment, that perhaps it merits being called Mono 5.0

Do you know what version of Mono this will be available in? Will it be the next release?

Correct, next version after Mono 4.8

Mono master has switched to Roslyn compiler as the default C# compiler. We'll keep both compilers (mcs and csc) available for some time but csc will be our preferred compiler from now on.

Our compiler always tracked Microsoft C# implementation very closely so I don't expect any upgrade issues, especially when both mcs and csc will co-exist because they have different set of supported command line arguments. For those using xbuild (or CodeDOM driven APIs) the upgrade should be automatic and only noticeable change will be different debug symbols format.
