We are publishing a newer preview of our second bugfix release on top of Cycle 7, called Service Release 1. As this is a Beta build, there may be some known issues and the possibility of new issues being found during testing.
NOTE Regarding .NET Standard and NuGet Client – These builds introduce compatibility with the new .NET Standard 1.6. This in particular allows developers to consume NuGet packages that have been built against the .NET Standard 1.6.
Please check out the product release notes to see all the fixes and known issues for this preview, and use the below forum threads to report and monitor issues that may occur, as well as find any potential workarounds that may exist.
NOTE: Since Google’s newest Android N previews now only allow linking to NDK-provided native libraries, existing apps using e.g. Mono.Data.Sqlite.dll will crash when running on Android N. You will need to rebuild your apps with Xamarin C6SR4, or later, to ensure that this crash does not occur once the final system image for Android N is released.
NOTE: Visual F# Tools 4.0 RTM must be installed in order for F# console project builds to work with Cycle 7 Xamarin Studio build noted below.
NOTE: You will need to have Microsoft Build Tools 2015 installed in order to use the iOS Designer in the beta channel, with the current Xamarin.VS build.
