Stable Release: Cycle 7 Service Release 1

We are publishing a Stable release of our second bugfix release on top of Cycle 7, called Service Release 1.

NOTE Regarding .NET Standard and NuGet Client – These builds introduce compatibility with the new .NET Standard 1.6.  This in particular allows developers to consume NuGet packages that have been built against the .NET Standard 1.6.

NOTE: Since Google’s newest Android N previews now only allow linking to NDK-provided native libraries, existing apps using e.g. Mono.Data.Sqlite.dll will crash when running on Android N. You will need to rebuild your apps with Xamarin C6SR4, or later, to ensure that this crash does not occur once the final system image for Android N is released.

NOTEVisual F# Tools 4.0 RTM must be installed in order for F# console project builds to work with Cycle 7 Xamarin Studio build noted below.

NOTE: You will need to have Microsoft Build Tools 2015 installed in order to use the iOS Designer in the beta channel, with the current Xamarin.VS build.

NOTE: The Cycle 7 version of Xamarin Studio on Windows requires both Microsoft Build Tools 2013 (or Visual Studio 2013) and Microsoft Build Tools 2015 (or Visual Studio 2015) to be installed.
