Build failed with new version of VS 2019

Since the latest update xamarin build is failing on both the previous and current version of VS 2019 Image. The problem we have is this so this is supposed to be fixed in 16.8 preview 2 and in your latest update you state that you have "Visual Studio 2019 version 16.8 Preview 3" although in my build log it says that the msbuild version is shouldn't it say 16.8xxx?
Can you shed some light on this?

    Hi Magnus,

    Please use Visual Studio 2019 Preview image to get Visual Studio 2019 version 16.8 Preview 3.

    Thanks, now I get 16.8 as the msbuild version. I do still get problems though, are you familiar with this error?
    "C:\projects\shopndrop-client\IFact.SND3S.Client.Jars\IFact.SND3S.Client.Jars.csproj(220,3): error MSB4019: The imported project "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.Bindings.targets" was not found. Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk."

    I actually managed to fix the build problems by messing around in the xamarin projects and going back to the standard 2019 image.. so so far it looks good again.
