Breaking changes in VS2019 vs VS2017

after switching to vs2019, my apk is suddenly 25MB instead of 23MB (same code, same targetframework 9.0, aot, but not enabled any new VS2019 features like r8/d8/aab)

The users complained after the update:

  • Widget showed "problem loading widget", app is no longer installed. After reboot and recreating the widget, it worked again.
  • Errors like: The operation was canceled at System.Net.Http.HttpClient.HandleFinishSendAsyncError (System.Exception e, System.Threading.CancellationTokenSource cts) and other different behaviour of HTTPClient.

I did: archive, then distribute adhoc, sign with same key and manual upload to the store. Is there a breaking change in the signing in vs2019 (I see differences in the rsa-file of the unzipped apk)? The unzipped apk also seems rather different when creating it with vs2019 instead of vs2017.

I didn't find anything in the devicelog. Anyone an idea what is wrong and how I can debug it?

And how long is vs2017 supported?
