Profiler Preview 0.36.0

Another preview release of the Xamarin Profiler is available. Changes since last release include:


  • Per-thread charts for allocations and samples
  • Allocations summary pie chart


  • Unify behavior in DrillDown area for different views

Bugs fixed:

  • 42256 - Weird double clicking behavior
  • 42913 - Missing autocompletion in Mac search boxes
  • 43458 - Out of place focus ring in search field
  • 43605 - Misnamed columns in allocations list
  • 43971 - Window mis-sized on low resolutions
  • 44243 - Missing scrollbar in charts section
  • 44244 - Missing information in chart tooltip

This is a preview release and there are definite limitations, including but not limited to:

  • No official support for profiling Release builds
  • Data sets are correct at time of collection but data mining and representation is preliminary. This will improve in future releases.
  • Time instrument not available for tvOS profiling

We encourage users to get in touch and file bug reports so we can continue to make this tool more useful and more stable.
