    We recent switched the default build engine in XS to MSBuild. Unfortunately there are no MSBuild targets for IL projects, and we do not currently have a way to set the default build engine per-language.

    You can work around this by unchecking the "Use MSBuild build engine" option in Project Options.

    ILASM is able to build IL code, you could implement it to xamarin, it would be very nice.
