The previously released Cycle 5 – Service Release 2 builds from the Beta channel have finished their testing runs and are now ready for release to the Stable channel. There have not been any additional fixes added since the updated Beta release last week.
Please check the product release notes for a full list of fixes to each product included in this release. Included in this release is the fix to Stable from last week for iOS 9/Xcode 6, so if you had previously updated to that, there is no danger in regressing if you move to these stable builds.
*UPDATE: The Xamarin iOS version for Stable has been upgraded to 22.214.171.124, which supports iOS 8.4 and Xcode 6.4.

Upcoming Release Dates

Stable – Today!
We are releasing an updated set of builds to the Stable channel in order to address the issues noted in our iOS9/El Capitan Technical Preview blog post. As noted in that post, we feel we’ve completed sufficient testing on the Xamarin.iOS SDK that resolves the issues affecting both 32 and 64 bit apps running on iOS 9. With this new Xamarin.iOS release, you should be able to rebuild and re-submit your apps using Xcode 6 and have them run against iOS 9 previews, ready to prepare them for the fall release of iOS 9. Head over to our developer page to read up on prepping your app for iOS 9.
We will also be posting previews of the Xamarin.iOS SDK that supports Xcode 7 and the iOS 9 APIs soon. Those builds will be distributed via a preview site, and we will have a new blog post up when they are available.
- [Xamarin.VS] – Debugging on iOS 9 devices from Visual Studio is not yet supported.
We have pushed a new Xamarin.Android SDK release and accompanying IDEs tools to the Stable channel to provide a few additional hotfixes that were needed based on the new SDKs provided at Google I/O.
Products Released To Stable

After extensive internal and public Beta testing, we are ready to promote our current Beta channel builds to the Stable channel for our first Service Release. Internally we refer to this as Cycle 5 – Service Release 1, as the previous Stable release was a major platform upgrade, which we called Cycle 5.
PLEASE NOTE – These builds also include an important hotfix to support the latest version of SDK tools (24.3) released by Google last week at I/O, which we also mentioned in our forum thread last week.
If you happen to encounter any issues or are seeing errant behavior, please be sure to post to the related product threads on our Forums.
