Comment 1 Brendan Zagaeski (Xamarin Team, assistant) 2016-08-25 02:57:19 UTC
Thanks for the report!  To help the Xamarin team address this issue as efficiently as possible, please provide additional information, such as:

- Do you get the same problem on a new template "iOS > App > Single View App" that references a new template "Multiplatform > Library > Portable Library"?  I was unable to replicate an error using that setup in my initial testing.

- If at all possible, please attach a small, self-contained test case that reproduces the bug with as little code as possible.

- Please collect and attach the diagnostic MSBuild output [1] for the failing build.

[1] See "verbose build output" on https://kb.xamarin.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1675684#verbose-build-output-logs

See https://kb.xamarin.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1910343 for additional details about what to include and some strategies for minimizing test cases.  Thanks in advance!

I think it is gone with updating the xamarin studio to the latest beta version, or it fixed itself over the night. I don't know. 

Didn't get the problem since thursday.
