    Issues Addressed in this Release:

    • Fixed case where IntelliCode is trying to log into a temporary directory and access to the temporary directory was denied.
    • An issue where some Visual Studio functionality was limited when third-party privilege management software is also installed has been resolved.
    • Addressed an issue where customers repeatedly start debugging on XBox, more and more kernel resources are consumed. Eventually requiring the XBox to be restarted, which would lose any state.
    • Addressed a hang when debugging native code with Insider Preview builds of Windows.
    • Fixed an accessibility bug with keyboard focus.
    • Added back missing Xamarin templates (iOS/Android Class Library, iOS/Android Bindings Library, Android Wear, Xamarin.UITest) in the New Project dialog. These templates were hidden by mistake.
    • For C++ CMake-based projects targeting Linux using an SSH connection, the destination directory specified in CMakeSettings.json by the remoteCMakeListsRoot property has been restored to the previous behavior in VS 16.8, where the destination of the copy corresponds to the source directory's root. Details in the ticket Connection to remote Linux machine uses incorrect destination path.
