What is happening with the Xamarin Mobile API? There were a couple of previews and some blogs earlier in the year. The last I saw was the addition of media support several months ago. Is it still under development?
@Sly it was just updated to support iOS6 changes. I'm using it quite happily in a couple of my apps. It's still actively developed and maintained!
Update by stealth was it? There's nothing about that in the release notes on the webpage or in the preview zip. Aside from the file modification dates, it's difficult to tell anything changed.
@Sly agreed, there should probably be a bit more info on the page about the library, the changelog, etc.
Indeed there was a stealth update, primarily because Xamarin.Mobile hadn't been fully updated to support iOS6. There were API changes needed to support the privacy changes in ABAddressBook which took a little longer.
Preview version 0.5.1 is now live with the full change notes at http://xamarin.com/mobileapi
@ermau thanks for the update and release notes!
We just rolled out an update with support for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8: http://blog.xamarin.com/2012/10/30/introducing-the-xamarin-developer-showdown-and-a-new-version-of-xamarin-mobile/
