The MonoTouch website was down for a while but they have it back up now. It
was just a glitch and not some overt corporate action. I heard that
monodevelop.com was down as well but I did not experience it first hand.

Attachmate are still activating the products. I am skeptical that we will
see many product updates/upgrades from them but time will tell. MonoTouch is
good enough right now that it is worth the price even without upgrades IMHO.
After all, current apps will continue to work on iOS 5.

I can live without new functionality while I wait for Xamarin. The community
around MonoTouch continues to evolve and new capabilities appear every day.
