Is CoreSearch API available on macOS High Siera?

I am aware that Xamarin doesn't cover 100% of Mac APIs, but somehow I am not sure if this one is not covered or I am doing something wrong: - simply because it is already covered on iOS and on macOS it should be the same.

    The macOS 10.13 APIs are not yet in stable [0]. If you swap to the alpha or beta channel they should show up.

    [0] - iOS and macOS have different release dates by Apple and since we can't ship stable bindings before the final release by Apple macOS "missed" the first release. Due to the VS release schedule, 15.5 was the best next candidate. The difference between 15.4 (stable) and 15.5 (alpha/beta) is not huge.

    Thanks @ChrisHamons, it's a very logical explanation, but never thought of it.

    Just to note that it's been six months and if I am not wrong this is not implemented. While I don't think that it will be implemented just on my feedback I guess that some feedback to push things is always useful.

    Core Spotlight is bound in the 15.7 builds in Alpha\Beta channel.

    The short version is that while the bindings were in source code when I checked, they were not enabled until this change, which was too late for 15.6.

    So yes, we had them bound, but not enabled. I did not notice this when I first looked.
