Are you sure you updated to latest? the log file shows Xamarin Studio 4.2.2, latest is 4.2.3.

well, while working in android project, i received the xamarin update notice.  I accepted the update and now the layout editor crashes. this is true for the xamarin ide and vs2012. i just uninstalled xamarin.android and then reinstalled the installer from the xamarin web site.  unfortunately the results are the same.

The latest Android SDK update from google (22.6) broke some api that the designer is using. We are working on a fix.
