Please see https://releases.xamarin.com/alpha-release-1/ for the details about this release, including the steps to update or downgrade as needed.

Note: This early Alpha version is not yet specifically aimed at addressing bugs in the recent Cycle 9 release to the Stable channel. Work is in-progress for another set of builds that will include additional bug fixes for Cycle 9.

This is an early preview version, so it likely contains a number of issues that will be caught and fixed during the normal internal testing and development process. Of course additional bug reports are still welcome.

Bug reports welcome

  • Please file a quick bug report using the current "Feature Preview" new bug form if you see any suspicious behavior in these versions that you wish to report.

    • You have trouble downloading one of the installer packages.

    When Xamarin Studio gets ASP.NET Core support, like Visual Studio for Mac? The existing add-ins are all obsolete.

    How do I install the alpha channel in vs 2017 RC? the Tools / options / Xamarin and the "Other" tab seems to be missing where I would normally select the Alpha channel... and I only see options for iOS and Android. I am logged into my account. Is there a link you can provide for the download? I am doing a demo on Tuesday at the VS 2017 launch and would love to get this working asap. Thanks! I only have vs 2017 installed on my machine, (no vs 2015)

    How do I install the alpha channel in vs 2017 RC?

    In short, that combination isn't available quite yet. The Xamarin version in VS 2017 RC is currently tied directly to the Visual Studio version, and the latest VS 2017 RC does not include the Alpha version of Xamarin. As I understand it, the plan is that some time after Visual Studio 2017 is out of RC, VS 2017 will provide a mechanism to install preview releases of Xamarin using a workflow similar to how you can currently install the VS Professional 2017 RC edition alongside the Enterprise 2017 RC edition using the Visual Studio Installer (accessible for example via the "Tools > Extensions and Updates" in Visual Studio).

    (See also an earlier related comment that might help give a little extra background context.)
