Debugging Mono's class libraries with MonoTouch.

In Xamarin's recent release of MonoTouch 4.2, a feature was included that enables the debugging the Mono framework's class libraries. This means you can debug right into the source code of the Mono framework as you would expect from just debugging into your own code. Since this uses up more space and memory when debugging your applications, this is turned off by default. You can see a video of this feature in action and how to turn the feature on in this short video:

If you can't watch the video then you can enable this feature by un-ticking the "Debug project code only; do not step into framework code" option in the MonoDevelop/Preferences/Debugger menu like this;

On a side note, I'm stupidly excited for the Amazon Kindle Fire. Interested in finding out the dev story for it though (such as what version of Android it runs on, how awesome will my Mono for Android apps look on it?)

Hope this helps,
