Description markus.miertschink 2013-04-01 03:15:05 UTC
After installation of 4.7.2 Alpha, the Release build will fail.
It seems that something is wrong with the linking task. If you disable the linking it is working - but no way on creating an apk as far as I know.

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.Common.targets(5,5): Error MSB4018: The "LinkAssemblies" task failed unexpectedly.

System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Specified argument was out of the range of valid values.
