Reason for release: Assorted bug fixes (see the release notes).
Date published: Stable updater channel on March 26, 2015.
Note: this release does not yet include fixes for new regressions found in 3.9.483 compared to 3.9.347. Those fixes are currently on the Alpha channel (see also http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/36241/alpha-release-xamarinvs-3-9-530-watchkit-bug-fixes/p1).
Use this thread to discuss any new bugs found after updating to these latest versions compared to XamarinVS 3.9.347 or XamarinVS 3.9.483. The links to XamarinVS 3.9.347 are:
As noted on the article about downgrading, you can downgrade by installing these versions over the currently installed versions.
The first post in this thread will be updated regularly to keep track of the list of reported problems as well as any new information from Xamarin.
If you find an issue that is not yet listed under the "known regressions" section in this post, please file a bug report (if this link redirects to the top-level
https://kb.xamarin.com/ page the first time you click it, try clicking it once more) and then post the link to the bug report in this thread. If you are concerned that you don't have enough details yet or are uncertain of which details to include on the bug report, then feel free to attach as much preliminary information as possible directly in a reply on this forum thread instead.
Please discuss older bugs that are unchanged in XamarinVS 3.9.525 compared to XamarinVS 3.9.347 in Bugzilla instead. Be sure to file a bug report for the issue if one does not already exist. As always, if you are a Business or Enterprise customer, feel free to contact support for assistance with reporting or following-up on these issues.
Of course for questions and discussions about topics other than bugs in Xamarin for Visual Studio, feel free start new forum threads.
Note: some of these issues are already marked "RESOLVED" in Bugzilla, and most of those fixes are available in the current Alpha version (3.9.530). If you do not need WatchKit support, downgrading to the previous versions (as mentioned in guideline #1 above) is another way to stop these problems.
