Workbooks & Inspector Preview 0.6.2

This is a bugfix and feature update of the last Xamarin Inspector preview.

Check out the initial release notes or our documentation for more details on the Inspector.

Also be sure to ask questions on the Inspector forum and file any bugs you may encounter.

Changes Since 0.6.1

  • Workbooks

    • Notebooks are now called workbooks. The file extension has changed from .ximd to .workbook, and the file format manifest has changed to be more future-proof. .ximd files are no longer supported.

    • Many fixes have been made to the care and handling of workbook documents. New/Open/Save behavior should be much more predictable now. For example, double-clicking a workbook file in Finder or Explorer will now open the workbook in Xamarin Inspector.

  • Alpha Channel Support

    • Support for inspecting apps from the IDE now requires Xamarin to be installed from the alpha channel.

    • However, Xamarin Inspector no longer requires any IDE to be installed since Workbook support does not require it.

  • CommonMark Markdown Editor improvements

    • An updated editor now features a formatting toolbar while editing.
  • Fixed selection bug in visual tree (#39232)

Known Issues

  • The CommonMark Markdown editor has various selection bugs on Windows.
  • Inspecting 64-bit WPF apps is not supported (#37134)

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.
