I've read the https://releases.xamarin.com/technical-bulletin-updating-xamarin-visual-studio-2017-side-by-side/ tech note, and am rather confused.
As Xamarin Studio is used on my Mac to install new versions of the stable/beta/alpha channel, I still don't have a clue as to how to match VS2017 to the Mac channel (stable/beta/alpha)?
2017 apparently only supports 'Release and Preview'. But - where do you chose Release or Preview? And how do you map Release or Preview to the 'stable/beta/alpha' on the Macintosh?
I also don't have a clue as to how to initiate an update of the chosen platform on VS2017? When the next release of the release or preview comes along, how does one choose to update to that new version?
It would be cool if Xamarin produced a short video on this topic as it's not obvious - at least to me!
