The Mono Debugger now requires a recent SVN version of Mono from either
HEAD or the 1-1-13 branch - r55884 or newer is ok.
As of today, the debugger is using the normal `mono' to execute managed
code rather than using its own `mono-debugger-mini-wrapper'; that
wrapper is now finally dead.
This has two very big advantages:
Since we don't need to find the "correct" wrapper any longer, it's a
lot easier to package and relocate the debugger.
b) Debugging a different Mono:
Probably the biggest advantage is that you can now use the debugger
to debug a different Mono than the one you're using to run the
You can, for instance, use the Mono from the stable 1-1-13 branch to
run the debugger to debug an application running the Mono from HEAD:
mdb -run -mono /path/to/your/unstable/mono Foo.exe
