SharpDevelop 3.1 Release Candidate 2

1) Release Information

This is our last release candidate for SharpDevelop 3.1, and we expect the final release to follow soon. Please note there is one breaking change included in RC 2 – the way projects are created by default. Make sure to read this blog post:

From the Tips & Tricks department – if you haven’t looked at the profiler, test-drive it using its unit test profiling feature:

Finally, Python support has been improved again for this version. Note however that project resources support for the forms designer will not ship in SharpDevelop 3.1.
