[Mono-list] Mono (last version)

Hi, all,

The last version of mono seems to have broken a lot of things.

I'm using Lubuntu 16.04, and using the repo at
http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian. Also last available version
in Windows.

$ mono --version
Mono JIT compiler version 4.4.1 (Nightly Wed Jun 22
11:14:49 UTC 2016)

When I try to launch an application compiled with Gtk#, it always crashes
with the following error:
System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'Gtk.Dialog'
threw an exception. ---> System.DllNotFoundException: gtksharpglue-2
  at at (wrapper managed-to-native)

I've tried with various .NET framework targets, but no-one seems to work.
This happens both in Windows (also last versions) and Linux.

In MonoDevelop/XamarinStudio, I'm facing the same problems also in both
platforms: I installed a plugin called "show in Github". However, it is
impossible to install the needed dependencies, which are MonoDevlop.Core
6.0 and MonoDevelop.Ide 6.0.

The outcome is that the status bar at the top of the window starts filling
with green up arrows. The funny colophon is that I can uninstall the
plugin, but with errors. It seems that the System.*.AspNet.dll is missing

Any idea?
Why is it an adventure to install a new version of mono?
I offer myself to test each new version, if that has the benefit of having
more stable releases.
