"Blank Xaml App (Xamarin.Forms Portable)" template project uses somewhat outdated Xamarin.Forms version 126.96.36.199
## 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.
The solution uses Xamarin.Forms 188.8.131.52 (May 30, 2016).
## Possible improvements
The templates could be updated to use the latest available version of Xamarin.Forms: 184.108.40.206 (September 13, 2016)
## Additional environment info (brief)
XamarinVS 220.127.116.113 (3b7df6f)
Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2015
Version 14.0.25425.01 Update 3
Microsoft .NET Framework
Windows 10 Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.187)
Fixed in latest C9
I have checked this issue with latest C9 Build: Xamarin.VisualStudio_18.104.22.1682_025c13c8d10a93a3b49f5395ec5ec5ead516ad1a and Latest Master Build: Xamarin.VisualStudio_22.214.171.124_9bea031b379ba29902fa6d147eae11fc062987b3 and Observed that all project having forms version 126.96.36.199
