Comment 1 Vincent Dondain [MSFT] 2016-07-21 17:13:40 UTC
So Mac extensions came on El Cap but Xcode 7.0 to 7.2.1 have OSX 10.11 support. So some extensions that do not require 10.11.4 APIs could still be built on Yosemite.

Therefore the statement: "Xamarin.Mac Extensions cannot be built on Yosemite" is incorrect.

Now the question is do we want templates that can't be ran, because in any case you won't be able to run and debug the extensions on Yosemite.
