Build info

Steps to Reproduce

2) Right click on the PCL, add a new file, observe the Forms item templates in the dialog.
3) Click cancel
4) Retarget the PCL to netstandard1.4

-Restoring packages fails due to the xamarin.forms packages incompatibility issue with .Net standard v1.4/1.5

-Packages should be added successfully

Support for .NET Standard is available starting with Forms 2.3.5. I was able to add the 2.3.5-pre6 package to a project targeting netstandard-1.5.
