Android designer fails to load template axml files.
XS Logs: https://gist.github.com/pjbeaman/b84dbf68dc000bdb2011
Android SDK versions
SDK Tools: 21.1
SDK Platform-tools: 16.0.1
I then upgraded my SDK to the following versions:
SDK Tools: 22
SDK Platform-tools: 16.0.2
The designer now loads the template project axml file, but the log has a bunch of exceptions, the NRefactory ones happen at project load though, not with the designer:
This is of course still out of date for the SDK, so I upgraded more. New versions:
SDK Tools: 22.2.1
SKD Platform-tools: 18.0.1
SDK Build-tools: 18.1
Still works. Same exceptions.
So I guess we don't handle SDK Tools: 21.1 and SDK Platform-tools: 16.0.1 any more. What's the minimum version of the SDK to support (and how do we want to handle out of date SDK versions when loading projects in the designer?). If we just want to improve the error in the future we can downgrade this bug to an enhancement.
The current behavior does not really lead the user to update their SDK version.
