"Blank Xaml App (Xamarin.Forms Portable)" template project uses somewhat outdated Xamarin.Forms version

## Steps to replicate

1. Create a new "Visual C# > Cross-Platform > Blank Xaml App (Xamarin.Forms Portable)" project.

2. Check the Xamarin.Forms NuGet package versions that are included in the new solution.

## Results

The solution uses Xamarin.Forms (May 30, 2016).

## Possible improvements

The templates could be updated to use the latest available version of Xamarin.Forms: (September 13, 2016)

## Additional environment info (brief)

Comment 2 Parmendra Kumar 2016-11-24 15:14:42 UTC
I have checked this issue with latest C9 Build: Xamarin.VisualStudio_4.3.0.332_025c13c8d10a93a3b49f5395ec5ec5ead516ad1a and Latest Master Build: Xamarin.VisualStudio_99.1.0.153_9bea031b379ba29902fa6d147eae11fc062987b3 and Observed that all project having forms version

Hence closing this issue.

I am getting UWP project still getting package version so I have filed separate bug: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=47846
