Description Dan Rigby 2014-10-06 09:55:59 UTC
The release notes here http://developer.xamarin.com/releases/vs/xamarin.vs_3/xamarin.vs_3.7/ indicate that version 3.7 is still an alpha (the page title is"Xamarin 3.7 (Alpha)") despite that it has been rolled out to the stable channel.

Additionally that page mentions the following:

SDK Sync
SDK Sync will not be functional in XVS 3.7.179

As the version in stable is 3.7.201, it's not clear if that issue has been resolved or not.

I have tried to reproduce this issue and able to reproduce. I open the Release note url: http://developer.xamarin.com/releases/vs/xamarin.vs_3/xamarin.vs_3.7/ and  It is showing Xamarin 3.7(Alpha) in list and in browser tab. 

Screencast: http://www.screencast.com/t/mrczsuV1ss

We also observed that SDK sync is functional with XVS 3.7.302 + X.iOS
