Modified _CreateIpa Target for alternate option
This "use at your own risk" "trick" of using an absolute path in the "IpaPackageName" property broke when the `_CreateIpa` MSBuild Target was updated to fix the "iTunesMetadata.plist" issue .

Fortunately MSBuild provides flexibility to achieve the same result in several different ways, arguably even more cleanly than before.
## One simple option: move the IPA file after it is created
I've created a new KB article for this technique here:
## Alternate option: override the `_CreateIpa` Target with a custom version
If you require that the `.ipa` file never be written to the "$(OutputPath)" folder, you could achieve that by copying the `_CreateIpa` Target into the bottom of your iOS app's `.csproj` file and then modifying the `Zip` Task's `OutputFile` argument. For example, you could again add a custom `IpaOutputPath` property (as discussed in the KB article):
(See the attached file for the full text of the modified `_CreateIpa` Target.)
I have now removed the old outdated KB article.
