We have discussed this internally for a while, and I just want to formalize
We are going to remove the build for the .NET 2.0 APIs from Mono which are
currently provided for bug/feature-compatibility for .NET 2.0 applications.
We are also going to remove the .NET 4.0 reference assemblies as they are
of dubious usefulness. They are merely there to allow developers using
Mono to build binaries that would work on .NET 4.0 systems that lack .NET
The burden of maintaining these is high, and they deliver very little
functionality, and also bloat our downloads.
If you want these assemblies, your best bet is to stay on Mono 3.10.
Future versions will no longer have it.
