This is the first release that targets Android 13 (API 33) by default. As a result a lot of the dependencies have been updated to accommodate this.

You will have to update your project and dependencies accordingly, else you will see build errors. For more information and more detailed instructions, have a look at this blog post.

Service Release 15 is identical to the Service Release 15 preview 1 release.

Pre-release

This is a preview version of Xamarin.Forms 5, Service Release 15. This is the first release that targets Android 13 by default. As a result a lot of the dependencies have been updated to accommodate this.

Please test this version against your projects and see if everything works as expected.

Known Issues

After updating to this version of Xamarin.Forms you might see warnings in your build output that state something like "unknown enum constant Scope.LIBRARY_GROUP_PREFIX". At the time of writing this is being investigated. This should however not prevent you from building your project.

This Service Release has 2 bigger changes on the Android side:

  1. We had a feature flag for accessibility improvements that you had to enable. This functionality is now enabled by default and there is a new feature flag to revert to the old behavior if that is what you want. If you want to disable the new functionality call Forms.SetFlags("Disable_Accessibility_Experimental"); before the Forms.Init(); call in your MainActivity on Android. If you had the Accessibility_Experimental flag in there to enable this functionality you can remove that one now. See #15075 for all the details.
  2. For a great number of controls on Android we have created new renderers that now use the AppCompat Android controls where they didn't use those before. We did this to be in compliance with the Google Emoji Policy. All controls should work as they did before. However, if you do see weird behavior, we introduced a flag to revert to the old renderers. If you need to disable the new AppCompat renderers call Forms.SetFlags("DisableAppCompatRenderers"); before the Forms.Init(); call in your MainActivity on Android. Note that this might prevent your Android app from being allowed on the Google Play Store. See #15279 for more details.
