I don’t know about you, but one of the most annoying things to code in Xamarin Android are adapters for lists. This is a typical example of stuff you need to do over and over again. In MVVM Light VNext, I will include an ObservableAdapter<T> as well as two new extension methods.
With this new class, you will be able to do something like this (for clarity I removed unnecessary code, so this code here does not compile. I will publish a working sample later).
