Description softlion 2017-07-18 05:48:26 UTC
a customer reported a problem in the XamSvg component.
It happens to be a problem with the assembly name chosen by the customer for an android app, containing the Android word. The customer renamed both the namespace and the assembly name using the Android application property pane.

But after saving changes in this pane, if you reopen it, you can verify that the old previous value of "Assembly Name" is still there.
