iOS 9 / El Capitan Preview Technical Bulletin

Yesterday Apple released the first previews of both iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan. We are working full-speed to add support for both iOS 9 and El Capitan right now, and we’ll keep you posted as things progress.

For iOS 9, we are investigating an issue that is causing a number of Xamarin apps to crash on startup. As we’re digging into this, the issue seems to be specific to apps that include 32-bit support.

Apple made some dramatic changes to OS X by making /usr/bin read-only, even with root access, so we’re working on making support for Xamarin Studio and the Xamarin Installer available as soon as possible to get up and running on OS X El Capitan.

As always, these are preview builds and we recommend staying with the stable releases of Xamarin and OS X and iOS until we make full support available for these previews available via this release blog and their preview sites.

Update: We have identified two issues that will affect both 32-bit and 64-bit apps on iOS 9. This has been released as a hotfix which you can find more detail on our hotfix blog post.

Beta Release: Cycle 5 – Service Release 1

We have been hard at work on our first Service Release to address known and newly found issues with our most recent Stable products (internally referred to as Cycle 5 – Service Release 1).

We plan on doing some more internal testing of these builds, but would love for as many people as possible to grab the Beta builds and help us give them a run through.

Make sure to check out the release notes below before updating to get an idea of what has changed. Previously released builds are also available for installation if the beta builds do not meet your current needs (see guide here for how to do that). These older builds are noted within the respective product forum threads linked below.

If you happen to still be encountering any issues we believed to be fixed, are seeing new and errant behavior, or are otherwise having problems with products from this release, please be sure to post to the related product threads on our Forums. Our Support team uses these release threads, and will be communicating through them to help triage issues and supply in progress builds not yet in preview channels that may contain additional fixes.


Products Released


 

Preview: Xamarin Profiler 0.15

Xamarin Profiler preview 0.15 is now available for download! This new release includes a couple of new features, plus a number of bug fixes, which have been covered in the release notes.

Please note that the Mac app bundle has been renamed (from XamarinProfiler.Mac.app to “Xamarin Profiler.app”), so the old version needs to be removed before installing this new update, so that Xamarin Studio prompts the user for the new location.


Products Released


As with all our preview releases, this is not a product we officially support. If you encounter any issues, we recommend filing a bug in Bugzilla. You can also jump into the discussions on the forum thread posted below.
