Description David Hathaway 2016-09-20 18:50:10 UTC
Steps to reproduce.

1. Create a new project
2. Add Json.NET via Nuget
3. Write code against the APIs, and look for code comments in intellisense

Expected Result

Intellisense shows comments/documentation from accompanying XML

Actual Result

Code comments are not showing in intellisense.

This works with Xamarin Studio 5.10 but not with 6.0 nor with 6.1.

I have checked this issue with C8 build XS 6.1.2 (build 34) and this issue is working fine with C8 build also. So I am closing this issue.
