Works for me on They must have fixed this. Please Verify when you get that one or at later build.
Comment 2 PJ 2013-04-05 12:53:33 UTC
Heyo actually I lied - the fix is to change line 60 in LayerAnimationScreen.xib.cs to use GetFromKeyPath instead of FromKeyPath.

This will be fixed on a branch of monotouch-samples called master-3.0. This is not done yet, so you can just make the change locally to continue testing. Thanks!

Fixed in 8b1142877404d4ec6d142b49441dde8a39aff4f0 on monotouch-samples/master-3.0

Please use this branch for all iOS 6.3.x+ testing going forward. Thanks!

Today with the latest builds:

Mono 3.0.8
Sample: monotouch-samples-master-3.0-0f140c2ea0135d2ae98af2a99194b6653ebbfd23

And now the build errors are not appearing.

Hence, closing this issue.
