Unable to install latest stable Xamarin cycle 9 release on Visual Studio 2017 RC

Hello guys,

On Visual Studio 2017 RC there is no option to ask for available updates nor it is possible to update the Xamarin version from Visual Studio update tool.
I have tried to install it using the *.msi installer however there is no option to add Visual Studio 2017 RC support, there is only Visual Studio 2013 and 2015 available to select. Is there a way to use the latest Xamarin version on VS 2017 or should I wait for the official release on 6 March in order to have official support to VS2017?

    VS 2017 requires you follow the updating mechanism that Visual Studio offers. Thus you will have to wait for an official Visual Studio RC update or for the actual release in March. Thus you can check the Visual Studio Installer program on your computer for any updates.

    The .msi is the structure that VS 2013/2015 follows, so that's the only way to receive updates there.
