A few observations when updating my Xamarin installation.
For the following feedback it probably helps to understand my use-case. I was affected by https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=20134 and another http bug, I forget the number. This meant I couldn’t take an update for a few months until they were fixed recently. (Update - seems they're not fixed anyway) We’re closer to release now, and I’m having some random issues on our Android app, so I figure it’s worth a shot updating to see if the problems are indeed now fixed. I need to know which version to download that will contain the fix.
Too many version numbers. Could all components follow a single numbering sequence? Eg. Xamarin 3.5 has Xamarin.Android 3.5. Of course you could still use the minor revision to update with build number.
Xamarin universal installer doesn’t list the versions of the contained components. I had to install 3.3 to find out it didn’t contain Xamarin.Android 4.16 with the fix I need. (Because it opened a webpage for those release notes – so I think it’s right. That said, installing 3.5.5 beta didn’t open any Xamarin.Android pages, so I’ll just have to try it and see.)
