Xamarin Android iBeacon Service

What does this library do?

It allows Android devices to use iBeacons much like iOS devices do. A Xamarin.Android app can request to get notifications when one or more iBeacons appear or disappear. A Xamarin.Android app can also request to get a ranging update from one or more iBeacons at a frequency of 1Hz.

Works great for basic needs, but the new lib getDistance() methods and other events that would make this useful for consumer grade application.

Chris, any way we can get this updated to the new lib so I can get you a 5 star ;-)

Any chance of an update - the existing lib is removed and replaced with a new one !
