Xamarin.Forms 1.5.0-pre1

Important Notes

This release update the package dependencies for google play services and android support lib. This is to ensure a good experience when using the latest google play services package. Unfortunately this may require a recompile for some libraries to ensure compatibility with the latest version of Forms. Thus we are bumping to 1.5.0 instead of 1.4.5. There are no features in this release.
