    Hey, I know how to move between updater channels, but is there an easy way to downgrade from say this release to the previous alpha preview?

    It is possible, but it is not generally facilitated for alpha previews because switching back to the Stable channel would usually be recommended instead. That said, if you want, you can write to contact@xamarin.com to request a set of earlier Alpha builds (as hinted at in the article about older Xamarin versions).
