When trying to use the new publishing workflow in 5.9, creating an app package fails when the assembly names has more than one period in the name.
**Steps to Reproduce:**
1. Create an iOS app with multiple periods in the name. i.e. My.Project.Has.Longname.iOS
2. Change the configuration to Release | iPhone
3. Right-click on the project and choose Create pacage for publishing
Info.plist: error : The assembly name (My.Project.Has.Longname.iOS cannot contain more than one dot.
The publishing does not work and no package is created.
**Build Date & Platform:**
This seems to be a change made by Rolf
This is by design; iOS ends up confused if the application executable has more than one dot.
The fix is to change the executable name to not have more than one dot (not including the extension).
Ok, I never had an issue before.
The strange thing is that sometimes this does build and I don't get the error - why is that happening?
@John, hard to say why that is. Can you enable diagnostic xbuild output in Xamarin Studio and get the build logs for a failed and a successful build?
