After creating the template in the description I have to download a support library. If I were a first time user, this means that the template would not build straight out of the box. I don't think that this is a regression; previously the support library would have been downloaded silently during the first run experience. But now that we have improved handling of partially downloaded libraries where there are errors, this makes things more apparent.
1) Delete support libraries and zip folder from <localappdata>\Xamarin\ folder
2) Open VS and create a new Cross Platform Blank Shared Forms App
4) Observe an error stating that you need to download support packages
