But is there a roadmap? Yes, there's a post[1] that says things will be
integrated and MonoDevelop will still be on Linux, but it doesn't say
what is happening as a roadmap.

It'd be nice if Linux wasn't left behind. I could run Android VMs and
code and deploy from Linux using Eclipse, so it isn't as if it is
impossible. And if the push is on making the new Xamarin Studio a
replacement for VS.Net (which it seems to be - a case of "look,
MonoDevelop never got traction, so here's a rebranded version with a few
bits to get more iOS/Android devs using it") then Linux is already on
the underlying supported list.
