TizenFX is a part of Tizen Project, which allows you to access platform-specific features not covered by the generic .NET and Xamarin.Forms. There are several versions of TizenFX, which have been published as Tizen.NET packages in nuget.org.

The API Level 5 for the Tizen 5.0 platform is the latest official release. For more details, go here.

This blog introduces how to use the latest Tizen .NET package, which includes nightly builds.

How to access nightly builds

The Tizen .NET package is published whenever there are any changes. The nightly builds are distributed through a custom NuGet feed. You can review the changes and new features that will appear in the next prerelease.

The feed is located here:
