    After updating every time you try to clean or build you get a dialog with "The Xamarin license file is invalid and could not be recovered" with an option for "Use Visual Studio Professional" after selecting this option you get the dialog one more time. Next try to clean or build you are going to get the same dialog again in a endless looping.
    In stable version you only get the dialog once.

    Roslyn keeps saying I have duplicate resources in the Resources.Designer.cs, until I clean or build. I was going to try adding the config option for turning off design time builds, but I'm not clear where "$(AndroidUseManagedDesignTimeResourceGenerator)" needs to be added.
    I read the documentation at the link you posted but it shows an example using the newer csproj format, I think. Where in the legacy csproj should it go?
    Thanks

    @BrendanZagaeski I would like to know if the MasterBehavior did works actually on iOS, because on Xamarin.Forms 2.4 the slide Menu does not have the same animation on both platforms, I mean, I want put it on top of the content on iOS like on Android.

    where "$(AndroidUseManagedDesignTimeResourceGenerator)" needs to be added.

    You can place it in any <PropertyGroup> element that is enabled for the current configuration. For example, you could place it in a <PropertyGroup> that has no Condition attribute if you want to use it for all configurations, or you can place under the <PropertyGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' for the currently active configuration. To disable the feature, you would add a line like the following under the <PropertyGroup>:

    <AndroidUseManagedDesignTimeResourceGenerator>False</AndroidUseManagedDesignTimeResourceGenerator>

    if the MasterBehavior did works actually on iOS ... I want put it on top of the content on iOS like on Android.

    I don't have any experience with MasterBehavior myself. I would recommend checking on Stack Overflow, the Xamarin.Forms forums, or Xamarin Bugzilla for any matching reports or recommendations.

    I don't see any release notes for Visual Studio for Mac 7.3. Will those be coming up any time soon?

    When getting an error in the top bar and clicking on it, the Error output window closes after 1 second :/ and also opening it through the View options doesn't solve the issue

    I'll pass along the question to the team to make sure those are in progress to be published asap.

    It sounds like you are seeing this in Visual Studio for Mac, and it sounds like an interesting finding. If you get a chance, be sure to Report a Problem for Visual Studio for Mac about that issue so the team can investigate and you can track the status in the Developer Community portal. Thanks in advance!
