Yes, the MonoDeveloper.Debugger.Soft.dll was split into two parts. The
new dll, Mono.Debugging.Soft.dll, is the soft debugger implementation
of the abstract classes in MD's Mono.Debugging.dll abstraction layer.
Since it does not depend on the rest of MD, it can therefore more
easily be used by MonoVS, and hence MD will benefit from bugfixes made
for MonoVS.

Unfortunately the makefiles accidentally installed this new dll into
the wrong directory. This has now been fixed.
