Description Matthew Orlando 2016-03-28 16:23:25 UTC
Visual Studio 2015 update 1 with latest Xamarin beta channel

Create an android project
Under the project properties -> packaging, choose Generate one package (.apk) per selected ABI
Under the advanced tab, ensure that some architectures are selected
Choose Build -> Export Android Package (for release config) or run the app on device to generate the APKs
Choose Build -> Clean

Expected result:

The build output directory is empty (or removed)

Actual result:

The build output directory contains all of the ABI-specific APKs that were generated
