Xamarin included in Visual Studio
March 31st, 2016
Nat Friedman on the Xamarin blog:
Xamarin will be in every edition of Visual Studio, including the widely-available Visual Studio Community Edition, which is free for individual developers, open source projects, academic research, education, and small professional teams. Develop and publish native apps for iOS and Android with C# or F# from directly within Visual Studio with no limits on app size.
Microsoft is gunning for developers.
