    Xamarin Studio is showing this release as being in the Beta channel. The Xamarin Studio, Xamarin iOS and Mono updates released with it are in Stable, but not this release.

    @GrahamPett, thanks for the heads-up! I have notified the release coordination team that the Stable channel is still showing Xamarin.Android 5.1.8 rather than 5.1.9, so it should hopefully be fixed shortly.

  • I prefer using LEO Privacy Guard to lock my apps.
    You should give that a try! :)
    And also, they update their apps regularly!! A few Days ago, they just Released V 3.0. :D
