John identified this a week or two ago when I asked why on the Mac I don't have any ABI's checked and they are all checked in Visual Studio.  It happened again.  I have been working in Visual Studio and after the latest beta update I tried Mac again.  I pulled the latest from SVN and again, no ABI's checked.  I checked my .csproj file and it has the following:


%3b should be a comma

This continues to be a problem and essentially blocks the ability to work on a problem on both Mac and Windows at the same time as the .csproj file is broken from this issue.

The supported Abi's element is serialized differently in VS vs. XS (Mac)

This should be fixed in the next public Alpha release, assuming our QA team approves the fix.

Today I have checked this issue with following builds:

All Mac and Windows
X.S 4.2.2(build 2)

After checking all Abis in VS when opening .csproj it is showing  <AndroidSupportedAbis>armeabi,armeabi-v7a,x86</AndroidSupportedAbis>. This is the screencast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/EghTyjf3

While on Mac all Abis are checked and after opening .csproj it shows <AndroidSupportedAbis>armeabi;armeabi-v7a;x86</AndroidSupportedAbis>
