Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-02-18 14:40:42 UTC
Like MSBuild, xbuild should inject TargetFrameworkAttribute into the build via a GenerateTargetFrameworkMonikerAttribute target. This will enable IDEs to determine the target framework of an assembly accurately.

Martin, was this implemented for all the targets?
Comment 2 Martin Baulig 2013-10-24 20:49:09 UTC
I think it was, but need to check again to be sure.  I've recently seen this being generated for Xamarin.Android projects, though.
