    Xamarin.Forms Official Home

    Project mention: What are some of Xamarin Forms shortcomings/cons which Maui still doesn't address? | | 2022-05-04

    Example issue: Its an issue reported by David O, its a 3 year old issue, there is limited communication from Microsoft on the issue, no plans, there are a couple of community discovered workarounds that got broken in later versions of Xamarin.Forms. I feel like its fairly common to come across an issue like this that can be a showstopper for a task. Do you come up with a workaround, do you wait for an official fix, do you use a third-party NuGet to accomplish the task?
