QuickStart.sln doesn't exist in "latest version of OpenTK"

Project:The Open Toolkit library
Category:bug report

I'm a newbie, so i followed the documentation, but i stucked in the first minute. I downloaded OpenTK from (i use Ubuntu, so am untouched by the exe version).
Step 2 in Chapter 0 says: "Double-click QuickStart.sln", but the dowloaded zip file doesn't contain such a file. So i downloaded the previous version, unzipped it, than overwrote with the new one. So i had the file, removed the bad OpenTK reference from the QuickStart project, and added the OpenTK.dll file from the Binaries/OpenTK/Release directory (i don't know how to add OpenTK.dll.config and how to set a reference to "copy to output directory" as mentioned in a comment at

I'm sure, it will be fixed in 1.1 but i think, the zip file linked from the documentation as "latest version of OpenTK" should be fixed as soon as possible, because other newbies won't be so resolute like me.

This was caused by the recent changes to the build system.

The ultimate plan is to add an OpenTK project type directly to MonoDevelop but this will take some time.
