Xamarin SDK for IBM MobileFirst 7.1 is live

Last week, we announced the general availability of IBM MobileFirst Platform v7.1. Today, we are announcing the availability of the Xamarin SDK for IBM MobileFirst Platform v7.1. Xamarin developers can exploit the new APIs in v7.1. You can download the SDK from the Xamarin Component Store.

You can use this version of the Xamarin SDK along with the new capability to host a demo MobileFirst Platform server in the cloud at Bluemix.net as a docker container. You can read more about it in the blog post by Ajay Chebbi.

What's new in the Xamarin SDK for MobileFirst Platform v7.1

  • New APIs added in IBM MobileFirst Platform v7.1 are included in the SDK (APIs for certificate pinning, improved login/logout behavior)
  • Some earlier missing APIs have now been added
  • Bugs fixes and improvements have been made to the Xamarin Studio addin that is shipped with the component.
Inclusive terminology note: The Mobile First Platform team is making changes to support the IBM® initiative to replace racially biased and other discriminatory language in our code and content with more inclusive language. While IBM values the use of inclusive language, terms that are outside of IBM's direct influence are sometimes required for the sake of maintaining user understanding. As other industry leaders join IBM in embracing the use of inclusive language, IBM will continue to update the documentation to reflect those changes.
