Visual Studio 2017 vs 2015 Differences

Question: Are there any differences between build an Android application using VS2017 and VS2015? The installed Xamarin version, JDK, SKD and NDK is exactly the same otherwise. Just the MS Build tools would be different.

We want to move to VS2017, but the Xamarin installer only works with VS2015. Installing Xamarin via VS Installer only updates to the latest version of Xamarin as far as I can tell. So if we need to rebuild our Continuous Integration machine, it may be a different version of Xamarin which is not good. If there are no difference the engineers can use VS2017 and the CI Machine will just use VS2015.
