Description Ian 2013-06-26 12:11:45 UTC
When a workspace is used, please create an option that will build all the solutions for the app store. Now that Xamarin has been out a long time there is a lot of apps being managed. Many dev's apps will have a common project they all share so updates to the project can mean updates to many apps.

Being able to 1 click build all to app store would save a lot of time.

This would also be very helpful if/when a big change happens that require us devs to rebuild all our apps to ensure they work after a change in xcode x.x. Something like that happened about 10 months ago. We had to rebuild everything one by one.

Think of the feature as emergency-preparedness.

As per this proposed enhancement, developer will need to look into this and will let u know about the feasibility of this enhancement.

The new publishing workflow in Xamarin Studio allows you to archive all the projects in your solution. Once archived you can distribute each archive to a number of distribution channels from the Archives view. This sounds pretty much like what you had suggested.
