It is absolutely not deprecated.

We just have a simpler way of bundling now, with a new and fresh command line option, that is all.

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply mkbundle was deprecated.  I was told that the --static argument was deprecated by someone at Xamarin/Microsoft, and linked to the newer mkbundle<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3a%2f%2flists.ximian.com%2fpipermail%2fmono-list%2f2016-August%2f052160.html&data=01%7c01%7cmiguel%40microsoft.com%7cdd36d91cf8c044edc79808d3cb9f7ec9%7c72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7c1&sdata=hNBr15FXAF4OLxDC3tTdXC02OlOkJwma3w43zPZTYKQ%3d>.  I assume this was related to the removal of the static libmono from some packages<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3a%2f%2flists.ximian.com%2fpipermail%2fmono-packagers-list%2f2016-February%2f000223.html&data=01%7c01%7cmiguel%40microsoft.com%7cdd36d91cf8c044edc79808d3cb9f7ec9%7c72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7c1&sdata=yiFcEEPLY3srZOebSPyyvh59xt%2fYKKlCZCZ60iDHF1A%3d>.

Where did you see mkbundle being depreceated (I ask as we use this).
