Will installing a newer mono version break Unity's mono installation ? (OSX)

Hello, I want to evaluate Mono Touch for developing iPhone apps. The Mono Touch installation requires a newer installation of mono, too. Am I safe doing this install or will I risk breaking my Unity installation ?

Thanks in advance.


It's safe. I have a Mono that I got from the Mono site for MonoDevelop running alongside Unity with no ill effect. Unity uses the Mono version that it has included as part of its framework.

It is safe. Unity does not install any version of Mono into "the system", it just loads & uses Mono from it's own installation folder.

So you can have any Mono version installed elsewhere, and that will not interfere with Unity (editor, standalone & web player) at all.
