The .NET conference of last week had large segments devoted to Xamarin and we thought this was a good time to take a look at Xamarin.Forms 5.0.
Xamarin.Forms 4.7 was released in June with a host of improvements. As with all Xamarin.Forms releases, every feature update brings you more customisation, faster coding and an expansion of options to create with.
Xamarin.Forms regular updates bring us a range of improvements. An interesting new feature from version 3.6 was the addition of Material Design controls from Google which allows you to match the default Android experience. Xamarin.Forms 4.6 is now building on this addition with further bindings to the Google library and added styling support.
July was a big month for Xamarin – with the first-ever Xamarin Developer Summit. With that, came a lot of new feature and upgrade announcements.
