Preview Release: 15.7 Preview 3

On Friday of last week (April 6th 2018), we released the third preview of our next major release, called 15.7. This release aligns with Visual Studio 2017 version 15.7 Preview 3 and a new Visual Studio 2017 for Mac Preview.

This version requires Visual Studio 2017 or higher. Visual Studio 2015 users are encouraged to update to Visual Studio 2017. Users who cannot yet update can continue to use the Xamarin 15.6 Release with Visual Studio 2015.

Note that this third preview does not yet include the Xcode 9.3 compatibility available in the Xamarin 15.6.5 release. Xcode 9.3 compatibility will be included in the next preview version.

As this is a preview release, there are some known issues and the possibility of new issues being found during testing. Please check out the product release notes to see all the fixes and known issues

Bug reports are welcome for any additional issues.

Products Released


You can switch back to the non-preview versions at any time by launching your side-by-side non-preview installation of Visual Studio 2017 and switching to the Stable updater channel in Visual Studio for Mac.
