Xamarin.Android Hotfix for Stable Channel to address “Could not load machine data” error

We are releasing an updated Xamarin.Android build to the Stable channel in order to address an issue with activation failures spotted in our recent Android M Stable Release from last week. This build is also being pushed to the Beta channel, as that channel shared the same Xamarin.Android version as the Stable channel at the time this issue was discovered.

Stable Release: Mono Framework for El Capitan

We are releasing an updated Mono Framework to the Stable channel. A bug has been identified as a critical issue affecting some internal tests, and we felt that releasing the fix was a priority.

The issue is caused by a new feature in El Capitan called System Integrity Protection (SIP). One of the changes resulting from SIP is that any environment variables prefixed with DYLD_* are blanked out when launching protected processes.   This caused problems for some applications, and in particular some features of Xamarin Studio.
