Xamarin Studio NOT working

I recently upgraded tot the newest stable version of Xamarin Studio on mac and now all of my solutions do not compile anymore. I updated my Xamarin.Forms nugets, does not work, rolled back the installation to previous version does not work. How can after all this time that the ide still sucks everytime there is an update. This is UNACCEPTABLE for the price we are paying to use this technology.

    What are the compilation errors you are getting? Did you try a clean and rebuild? Further did you try deleting all of the bin and obj folders in your solution?

    Have you tried Visual Studio for Mac? Visual Studio for Mac is Xamarin Studio rebranded with some additional features and will be the IDE for developing with Xamarin on a Mac moving forward. Xamarin Studio will likely not get updated any further.

    I tried all that nothing is working. Now I switched to VS for mac and it seems to work for now.
