Hi all,

Visual Studio 2017 version 15.7 is now available, featuring significant improvements to the XAML experience for mobile developers. The Xamarin.Forms XAML editing experience is now powered by the same IntelliSense engine that powers WPF and UWP. This brings several enhancements to developers, including improved matching, binding/commanding IntelliSense, light bulb suggestions, code navigation, linting, resource completion, and markup extension completion.

Take a look at this blog for a full look at this experience:

Thanks,
Pierce Boggan

    Just updated from VS2015 to VS2017 15.7.5...
    IntelliSense looks really good and also the rest to the VS environment (debugger, nuget manager, connection to MAC and Android devices) works better in VS2017.
    So... for one time, a positive comment from me :sunglasses:
