Previous csproj had <AndroidEnableMultiDex>. It looks like in 4.5 that's changed to <AndroidEnableMultipleDex>. This migration is not performed automatically meaning the user has to go in and check the multidex option after upgrading.

Actually it looks like the Xamarin in VS 15.2 is setting <AndroidEnableMultipleDex> when you set the checkbox in the project settings but is only looking at <AndroidEnableMuliDex> when deciding whether to multidex or not.
Fixed. This will likely make it in our next release. Thanks for the report!

When will the fix be available? Currently, I'm stuck as my multidex projects throw a bunch of errors because of missing code parts.
*** Bug 56219 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
@Ruben It will be available in the next update. As a temporary workaround, you can manually add <AndroidEnableMultiDex>true</AndroidEnableMultiDex> (or false) manually wherever <AndroidEnableMultipleDex>true</AndroidEnableMultipleDex> (or false) appears in the csproj file for your Android application. That should fix any issues you may heve
