The follow doesn´t work with [assembly: XamlCompilation(XamlCompilationOptions.Compile)]

<ContentView xmlns="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2014/forms"
            <!--The following doesn´t work with [assembly: XamlCompilation(XamlCompilationOptions.Compile)]-->
            <system:String x:Key="AppName">Mobile App</system:String>
            <x:String x:Key="ApplicationName">Mobile App</x:String>

I can confirm that <system:String> doesn't work, but <x:String> works perfectly well for me
Comment 2 Rui Marinho 2016-01-20 12:10:09 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.1.0-pre1
Comment 3 Ahmed Alejo 2016-01-23 21:22:38 UTC
I´ll create a test project to verify this!
