Seems to be working after creating an iPhone project with a storyboard...

Hi Trevor,

The attached project renders fine with a recent internal build which we plan to soon promote to the Alpha channel. Stay tuned.

Now no exception is displayed. We have checked with attached project. On first time double clicking the MainStoryboard.storyboard it shows 'Upgrade to supported format' link. After clicking upgrade link, storyboard renders correctly. 

Created new storyboard projects and storyboard file is opening correctly after double click.

Updating bug status as verified. Please let us know if anything additional is required to check.
