Xamarin Studio is MonoDevelop plus a set of add-ins. Those add-ins provide the required functionality for working with Android and iOS projects, and integrate some Xamarin services such as the Component Store. 

The development of MonoDevelop will continue like it has been in the past. All the improvements which are not related to Xamarin's commercial offerings will be done in MonoDevelop, and we have plans for a lot of them: code analysis, version control, debugger, etc. We are committed to keep evolving MonoDevelop, because a better MonoDevelop means a better Xamarin Studio. 

MonoDevelop will also keep working on Linux. There may be some rough edges with MonoDevelop 4.0 on Linux, since for this release we put our focus on Mac and Windows, since that's what Xamarin's customers use. So if you find any problems please file bugs!
