Preview Release: 15.7 Preview 1

We are releasing a preview of our next major release, called 15.7. The release aligns with the Visual Studio 2017 version 15.7 Preview. A corresponding Visual Studio 2017 for Mac Preview is *not* yet available. Users should continue to use the latest Stable version of Visual Studio 2017 for Mac in combination with these preview versions for now.

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.

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.

15.5 Release History

Preview 1 – October 11, 2017

Preview 2 – This Release!

Preview: Xcode 9.1 Beta 2, iOS 11.1 Support – Preview 1

Today we are releasing the following builds as Xcode 9.1 Web Preview 1. These versions include preview Xamarin SDK bindings and preview IDE compatibility for Apple’s Xcode 9.1 beta 2 release.

Note that this is a standalone download link that is not yet published in the Visual Studio for Mac updater channels. As a result, Visual Studio for Mac will offer an “update” back to the current published updater channel versions when you have this version installed. You will need to disregard that notification if you wish to keep using this Xcode 9.1 support preview. The Xcode 9.1 features will be added to the updater channels in the future, after Apple publishes the first non-preview version of Xcode 9.1 to the App Store.

Any bug reports about these preview Xamarin bindings are much appreciated!
