Ship a minimal mono 5.10 runtime in the macOS .app bundles #16319

commented Mar 17, 2019

This PR continues the work from #16316 (which it also depends on) by shipping the runtime on macOS too.

This pulls in a number of macOS launcher changes:

  • Update SDL to 2.0.9 (this was done last year, but was un-shipped as part of the dark mode revert)
  • Compile our own FreeType 2.10.0 library to remove Mono dependency
  • Remove the mono version check and download/update prompt
  • Replace the launchgame executable that linked against the system libmono2.dylib with the mono executable and runtime provided by Microsoft for the mkbundle cross-compiler toolchain.

This ships mono 5.10 so that we can keep a standard version between the AppImages, macOS, and the compiler used to build releases (which will be updated from 4.6 to 5.10 in a future PR). Ideally, before shipping the first playtest with these changes, we can review our baseline OS requirements and bump the mono version to something newer in all three places at once.

Fixes #12170
Closes #14879

Test build: OpenRA-pkgtest-20190317.dmg

Package mono inside the macOS app bundles.
This also removes the explicit dependency on mono's
packaged FreeType, which should allow development
builds to be used with homebrew-packaged mono.
