Xamarin.Forms 3.2.0 Released: Going Big with Little Things

marin.Forms 3.2.0 continues the theme of previous releases to give you big wins by making little things much easier to do. The entire version 3 series has been about reducing the friction of doing such things as positioning the Android tabs to the bottom, controlling spellcheck and capitalization and prediction on text controls. There are even trivial improvements to setting ImeOptions, coloring various elements of switches and bars, and so many more.

Adaptive Mobile Designs with FlexLayout

Xamarin.Forms is fantastic for quickly shipping a single code base to multiple platforms and devices. As soon as you are present on all those different screens, you need to make sure your UI looks as you expect, and even adapt the layout for your specific goals. FlexLayout makes this easier than before and provides new options for you to space and distribute your UI to suit different dimensions.

Xamarin.Forms 3.1: Improving the Little Things

Earlier this year, we surveyed Xamarin.Forms developers about the kinds of custom controls and extra platform code being written repeatedly that should be considered for support “in the box”. From these conversations, we created an initiative to deliver as many as we could in the next several releases. Just six weeks after shipping Xamarin.Forms 3.0 at Build 2018, we are excited to introduce Xamarin.Forms 3.1 with a batch of those enhancements to make your lives easier. Now you can spend more time investing in your applications! In this article, we'll take a look at some of the highlights.
