Why is Maui listed as GA. Just opened VS 2022 and what was working last evening is now toast.

I try to compile and this is the result:

Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State
Error IDE1100 Error reading content of source file 'C:\Visual Stuido Stuff\Maui\DXMauiApp2\obj\Debug\net6.0-android.NETCoreApp,Version=v6.0.AssemblyAttributes.cs' -- 'Could not find file 'C:\Visual Stuido Stuff\Maui\DXMauiApp2\obj\Debug\net6.0-android.NETCoreApp,Version=v6.0.AssemblyAttributes.cs'.'. DXMauiApp2 (net6.0-android) C:\Visual Stuido Stuff\Maui\DXMauiApp2\obj\Debug\net6.0-android.NETCoreApp,Version=v6.0.AssemblyAttributes.cs 1 Active
So since the file exists I have no idea what is going on except that my project is now toast. This because I shut down the workstation and now I am seeing "

Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State
Error : XamlC error XFC0000 : Cannot resolve type "Application". DXMauiApp2 C:\Visual Stuido Stuff\Maui\DXMauiApp2\App.xaml 1

It gets better (not really) I think that the project file is corrupt (it has happened too many times for a GA product) and I notice that the file exists in the folder but not in the solution. I do another build and it says restoring that file. I open the file with notepad so it really does exist but when I do a search in VS in the Solution Explorer it does not.

Confusion reigns here

    See my comment above VS and Maui do not play well together yet.
