Please see the Visual Studio 2017 release notes and Visual Studio 2017 for Mac release notes for the details about this release. To get the new versions, update Visual Studio 2017 to version 15.7 and update Visual Studio 2017 for Mac to the latest Stable updater channel versions.

This version requires Visual Studio 2017 or higher. Visual Studio 2015 users are encouraged to update to Visual Studio 2017. Users who cannot yet update can continue to use the Xamarin 15.6 Release with Visual Studio 2015.

    Since 15.7 we get following error if we use the bundle functionality:

    bundled app initialization error: dlopen failed: cannot locate symbol "mono_jit_set_aot_mode" referenced by libmonodroid_bundle_app.so

    Thank you. I found a complete documentation to downgrade VS:

    15.7.4 is fairly frustrating with the good old "The "Xamarin.Forms.Build.Tasks.GetTasksAbi" task could not be loaded from the assembly..."
    None of the old suggested fixes would make this go away.
