April brought us the release of Xamarin.Essentials 1.5. Xamarin.Essentials always brings us simplification of intricate native features into a single cross-platform library.
Here is a quick round-up of the new features in this release:
- A new way to simply choose theme, light or dark mode
- A new and simpler code to ask for permissions such as camera access or location
- Pairing with ASP.NET Core authentication is easier than ever
Of course, all these features will function seamlessly across iOS, Android, UWP, Tizen, watchOS, and tvOS.
