WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.
To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.
To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog].

pushed forms version 1.3 out to the stable channel prematurely?

i wonder if xamarin accidentally pushed their forms version 1.3 out to the stable channel prematurely.  see attached pic.

I can't reproduce this, we may have to see if a developer can figure out what's going on from the stack trace. If you have a chance, it might also be helpful to include sample project, build info and logs(Build output + IDE logs).

You can get build Info from here:
Visual Studio => Help => About Microsoft Visual studio => Copy Info

You can get build output from here:
Visual Studio => Debug => Window => Output => Select Build option from drop down (copy and attached output)

You can get IDE logs from here:

Visual Studio => Help => Zip Xamarin logs (attached the zipped logs)
