Workbooks & Inspector 1.5

Xamarin Workbooks & Inspector provide interactive tools for learning, experimenting, and even modifying your running app.

This is a minor update to the 1.4 series, adding support for the latest SDKs.

New & Improved

  • Add support for iOS 12, Xcode 10, and macOS 10.13 SDKs.

  • Prefer iPhone X to iPhone 5s for running iOS workbooks.

  • Bump .NET Core support to the 2.2 preview SDK.

  • Add support for C# 7.3.

  • Bump NuGet to 4.8.0 for increased package support.

Notable Bug Fixes

  • Support launching emulators with latest Android SDK.

Known Issues

  • NuGet Limitations
    • Native libraries are supported only on iOS, and only when linked with the managed library.
    • Packages which depend on .targets files or PowerShell scripts will likely fail to work as expected.
    • To modify a package dependency, edit the workbook's manifest with a text editor. A more complete package management UI is on the way.

Xamarin Workbook

If it's not already installed, install the Xamarin Workbooks app first. The workbook file should download automatically, but if it doesn't, just click to start the workbook download manually.
