### Description

Currently, it can be hard to be certain when the APK creation process is completed. Though the status bar is indicitive, writing "APK Creation Completed" to the output window would be preferred

When compile finished,"\n" is inserted,but that's all.
Leaking memory?

This issue was resolved by the new Archive Manager feature included in our current public Beta bits (XVS 4.2.0).

Please see the release notes here: https://developer.xamarin.com/releases/vs/xamarin.vs_4/xamarin.vs_4.2/

Agree, the new Archive Manager resolves this multiple ways. There is the Archive Manager GUI and the Xamarin log also prints "App archive '{AppName}' completed successfully."
