I'm using Xamarin Studio Community 6.3 (build 864) along with Visual Studio Community for Mac 7.0.1 (build 24). I'm using both IDE's because the compiler in Xamarin Studio is refusing to stop at pinpointed breakpoints while the Visual Studio compiler is refusing to build the iOS project.
The project I'm working on is using Xamarin Forms 22.214.171.124. It is showing that an update is available to 2.4, but honestly I don't want to risk jeopardizing my working project at this phase. Because every update I've tried in Xamarin has proved to have some very painful side effects on my work.
I had things under control until the latest Apple iOS release when I had to update the Xamarin.iOS framework, and then had to update Xcode in order to be able to build the iOS project again. But after all now I'm having trouble loading XAML preview in either IDE.
The Android preview has never worked from the get go, so I was entirely relying on the iOS preview in building my views and now that has also been damaged for the most ridiculous of reasons. As you see it is telling me that Xcode 7.0 or later is required to render these documents. I'm already using Xcode 9.0 thanks to the latest update, and I don't wish to update the Xamarin Forms framework I'm using at this point. Maybe that would've been possible if I'm still starting the project.
I wish I can take back these silly updates, but I can't. So would any of you have an idea about making the XAML previewer work again without doing any further updates?
