Many of our first-time visitors first heard of MonoX on Microsoft Windows Web App Gallery
. Most of them are using the Web Platform Installer
tool becuse of its simplicity and the ease of use. However, there is one downside: people at Microsoft's team are very busy checking all of the submitted applications, and there is a considerable delay between our official release date and the publication date on App Gallery.
The Web Platform Installer 3.0 solves this problem by adding a cool new feature that allows you to configure the application feed URLs. This feed will not only keep you updated with the latest official MonoX releases - it will also keep you up to date with all beta releases and patches.
Please make sure that you have the latest version of WebPI. After you start it, locate the MonoX package (using the search box or directly on the Applications tab):
There is a small "Options" link towards the bottom of this screen. Click on it, enter
under "Display additional scenarios", and click on the Add feed button.
That's it! There is an additional MonoX tab at the top of the screen that gives you a direct access to all current releases of MonoX.
