Preview Release: Xcode 10 Beta 3

Today we are releasing the following builds as Xcode 10 Beta 3 Web Preview. These versions include preview Xamarin SDK bindings and preview IDE compatibility for Apple’s Xcode 10 beta release.

Note that these are  standalone download links that are 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 these versions installed. You will need to disregard that notification if you wish to keep using this Xcode 10 support preview. The Xcode 10 features will be added to the updater channels in the future, after Apple publishes the first non-preview version of Xcode 10  to the App Store.

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