Description B. Clay Shannon 2014-03-27 18:47:38 UTC
Both Xamarin.Mobile and ZXing.Net.Mobile's API pages seem broken. After installing them into the Components folder and right-clicking them inside that folder and selecting "Open API Documentation," these links are navigated to:


...but their only content is "This webpage is not available"

The components API documentation webserver is temporarily shut down. We're working on improving the content right now, sorry about the trouble!

I have checked this issue with Stable XVS 3.11.666 and getting same behavior given in the bug description. When I right click on components and select "Open API Documentation " then links navigated to browser but it Display "This webpage is not available".
