Hey AFAIK Alpha channel was advised for the XS IDE editing of Storyboards. However in a few projects I'm currently working on, The Alpha channel has some bugs with PCL's which do not occur in stable. In some projects opening my Storyboard in XS IDE ends up messing up my storyboard which isn't the case with XCode.
So switching between Alpha(for classes) and Stable(for normal projects) on a daily basis are going to be a real pain.
Is it fine if we only switch to Alpha on the days for iOS specific modules?
Currently in Win 8.1 with VS2013 to switch back from alpha to Stable, I need to uninstall everything xamarin and re-install it as the installer doesnt allow a downgrade. Then I got to do the same on the mac
