This thread has now been closed to direct all further updates about this release onto the latest announcement:
Please see https://releases.xamarin.com/beta-preview-4-cycle-8/ for the details about this release.
This is a Beta preview of the next major feature release, called Cycle 8. It has several known issues under investigation, but as mentioned in the Release Blog post, the Xamarin engineering team is looking for as much additional user feedback via Bugzilla as possible on these Cycle 8 Beta versions, especially for the iOS 10 and Xcode 8 features.
Please file a quick bug report using the "Cycle 8 Preview" new bug form if you see any behavior that looks suspicious in these versions (and if it isn’t clear whether one of the known issues in the release notes matches the problem).
Comment in this forum thread if your question is not related to a suspicious behavior after installation, but instead one of the following:
