With macOS Mojave, Apple introduced support for Hardened Runtime and Notary service. These two services are designed to improve application security on macOS. Recently Apple has stated:
“Beginning in macOS 10.14.5, all new or updated kernel extensions and all software from developers new to distributing with Developer ID must be notarized in order to run. In a future version of macOS, notarization will be required by default for all software.”

In the recent release of Xamarin.Essentials (1.1.0) we introduced several new stable features including detect shake, browser customization, and a plethora of platform helpers. The team has also been working hard on one of the top requested features, which is around files. So to get feedback from developers we snuck in a few preview features into 1.1.0 including the ability to share a file or add a file as an email attachment! It is extremely easy to get started using these new preview features with just a few lines of code.
An essential part of any mobile application is the ability to persist data. Sometimes that is a large amount of data that requires a database, but often it is smaller pieces of data such as settings and preferences that need to be persisted between application launches. This is where Xamarin.Essentials can help out with its wide range of cross-platform APIs for mobile apps.
