messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
with the update yesterday the occasional freezing of Visual Studio seems to have been fixed for me, but now I get a different error. Sometimes (especially after a larger merge of branches) I cannot build a Xamarin solution because I get errors like
Metadata file '***.dll' could not be found
The only fix appears to be to delete the .suo file associated with the solution and restarting Visual Studio.
Are you still seeing this behaviour with our latest Alpha build?
As we've added several improvements to our build system and deploying/debugging mechanism since the bug was reported, I'm resolving it tentatively as Fixed.
That said, if you're still facing this issue with current bits, please feel free to reopen the bug.
