- Xamarin.Forms is now compatible with .NET Standard projects! Not all build features may work.
- Behavior change:
Device.RuntimePlatform now returns
WinRT on WinRT and
UWP on UWP.
- Behavior change: Using the new
AutomationProperties may impact UI Test execution on Android.
HelpText will all set the native
ContentDescription property, with
HelpText taking precedence over
HelpText will be concatenated). This means that any tests looking for
AutomationId will now fail if
HelpText are also set on that element. To work around this issue, please alter your UI Tests to look for the value of
HelpText in this scenario.
- Behavior change: Calling
Focus on a
Picker on WinRT/UWP will now open the drop down.
- Deprecation: Android
IVisualElementRenderer.ViewGroup is now obsolete. Please use
