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!
