1. Open Xamarin Studio
2. Select File->New->Solution
3. Select a Xamarin Forms solution (I used a PCL, this may not matter)
4. Once the project is finished, expand the Packages folder.
Notice: Package update is available. Right-clicking reveals that Xamarin Forms 184.108.40.20635 is being used
Expected: Xamarin Forms 2.0 should be automatically added to the project.
While this may seem insignificant, or something which could easily be fixed by the customer using Nuget, I marked it as "major" severity. Please consider:
* Some customers are not familiar with Nuget. I myself was not familiar with NuGet until just recently, despite having been a C# developer for many years.
* Updating Xamarin Forms results in earnings. Specifically, "XAlign = TextAlignment.Center" in the default setup.
* Updating Xamarin Forms results in a compile in the resources file.
* Customers sometimes will tolerate one manual fix, but when one fix results in the need for a second or third fix, customers can get very frustrated, especially if they are evaluating a piece of software.
This is going to be updated in the future.
