I have a need to have CI for Xamarin projects. Is this on the roadmap?

    Yep I saw that one, too - however afaik, you have to bring along your own mac (with xamarin installed) tfs vnext build agent along for that, see

    As the tfs vnext build agent tasks are open source now, the steps performed underneath for such builds are available here:

    Do you know if that "activate" step works for shared build environment too? I heard Xamarin license is bound to computer and is getting locked after few activations.

    Not totally sure, but overall I know there's a 4 computer limit for activating licenses.

    That said, there's a deactivate step too:

    So someone using it would need a spare activation available, then would activate/deactivate their own instance.

    Also, to build a Xamarin.iOS class library, you don't need a mac; you only need the Xamarin.ios tools installed for VS. If you want an IPA file, then you do need a mac for that.

    Even without a mac, being able to build Xamarin.iOS libraries on a PC (which you can do without that mac connection), would be very valuable for OSS libraries that have Xamarin support.

    Guys, you may want to try it out: (it's on new OSS workers for now).

    @Oren - thanks for the hint ;)
