Introducing 
CocosSharp

CocosSharp is a cross-platform library for building 2D games, blending the power of the Cocos2D programming model with C# and the .NET Framework. To make adoption easy, we've created NuGet packages with Portable Class Libraries that are available on both Visual Studio and Xamarin Studio, allowing you to build portable class library components on top of it, or build game logic in a portable class library and reuse the code across all platforms. CocosSharp is open source, and we've created several sample apps to help you get started. View the sample apps »

64-bit support comes to iOS and Mac

Earlier this month we released a unified API with 64-bit support for iOS and Mac. Along with this update comes easier code sharing and the ability to adopt Xamarin's lightweight mobile profile. The new Unified API is available now in the Beta channel as an opt-in. Xamarin will continue to support the Classic API you are familiar with for both Mac and iOS alongside the Unified API indefinitely. We're also holding a live webinar, "Get Ready for iOS 8," on Thursday, September 11 at 8am PDT/11am EDT where we'll walk you through the top new and updated APIs in the release as well as help you get your apps iOS 8-ready.
