- The latest features and API requires Xcode 8.1 and the bundled macosx10.12 SDK;
- Apple Xcode 8.0 requires a Mac running macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) or 10.12 (Sierra).
The Xamarin.Mac 3.0 release includes the new APIs that Apple added in the latest SDK (macosx10.12) shipped with Xcode 8.
Please note that the new MediaPlayer framework was changed to 64-bit only.
This release is built upon our open sourced SDK,
cycle9 branch, and based on Mono 4.8.0.
New NSUrlSessionHandler implementation
A new implementation of
NSUrlSessionHandler was contributed by Nick Berardi. The new version offers the same features as the previous one but requires less memory and, by reusing it, less time spent in the garbage collector;
- String optimizations inside the binding generator, i.e.
bmac, makes it 10% faster than previous releases;
- Additional caching in the registrar makes it about 4% faster than previous releases;
- Several fixes to allow the use of
xbuildin many cases. Applications using the Xamarin.Mac 4.5 Target framework can not use xbuild yet due to this bug.
Cycle 9 service release 0.
