Description Rodrigo Kumpera 2012-01-03 14:16:56 UTC
The MfA addin checks the version of the installed MfA but doesn't bother to report if an unsupported version is found.

The addin should fail tasks such as build if the version of mandroid is not supported. This is much much better than silently producing broken binaries.

With which version of MfA does md-addin fail to build with mandroid? Now our addin is version-aware, so features could be disabled taking it into consideration.
Comment 2 Rodrigo Kumpera 2012-04-23 11:22:12 UTC
I believe I had a 2 releases disparity in the versions. I should probably have reported version numbers.
It was around the time we introduced fastdev that this broke for me as I remember.
