We've rolled out version 0.6 of Xamarin.Mobile, our cross-platform library that provides access to mobile device capabilities such as determining the user’s location, taking photos with a built-in camera, and accessing the system address book. The new version introduces support for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. It also includes a number of fixes, particularly for the MediaPicker.

To celebrate the release, we're featuring it in the Xamarin Developer Showdown, our first-ever mobile app development contest! For more details, check out our blog post announcing the contest and the Xamarin.Mobile update.

Thanks to @ermau for his awesome work on Xamarin.Mobile!

    I have recently purchased "Mono for Android" and "MonoTouch", do I have to purchase it again once it is officially released :(

    Your licenses give you 1 year of updates, and do not have anything to do with Xamarin.Mobile, which is a library which abstracts mobile capabilities across platforms.
