Preview: Android M Support – 2nd Preview

We are releasing our second preview with support for Google’s Android M SDK. This build supports the Android M Preview 2 released by Google on July 9th.

There is no target stable date for M support at this time, as we have to wait until Google finalizes and publishes their support before we can release ours. That being said, we may do additional M preview releases between now and the final Google release, so be sure to check back and see if newer versions become available in the coming months.

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.

Known Issues 

  • 31002 – [Xamarin.Studio / Xamarin.VS] – Users will have to manually make sure their minimum SDK version is set to v5.1 (22) or lower, instead of v5.2 (23), in order to deploy to M devices and emulators.
