I recently tried out 1.5.1-pre2 on my Android project, I also upgraded the AppCompat and other related packages to their latest version 23.
It now doesn't create the Resource.Designer.cs properly and I get these errors.

Other people are having the same issue as seen here:
Please make sure you have the API 23 build tooling installed in your SDK manager and restart your IDE.
I did install everything to the latest version including the build tooling from the Android SDK Manager. Screenshot attached to prove my claim :)
I will give it another attempt next week, i'm just pushing out the Android app shortly and don't want to play around with it at the moment.

I have the same problem. The Android SDK also seems up te date here.
Same problem after update to XF 1.5.1 stable version.
same problem !
I haven't gotten around to retesting this which is why I haven't closed this report just yet but apparently all you need to do is:
1. Set your compile target to API 23, you can still keep your minimum
2. Install version 23 of the SDK
3. Restart your IDE. (the step I forgot)
I just jumped back down to compile against API 22 for the time being, which also works fine.
ok, got it working with api 23, had to get the sdk though, something I didn't even know I needed to do with forms...
Got it working too with 23.
This is not actually a bug, I have set it to resolved (apologies if I wasn't meant to do that but I can't find any rules on what I am allowed to set a status to)
Some additional things people had to do to get it working are listed in the Xamarin Forums link above.
