Firebase "RemoteMessage" not found, VS Version 8.10.18 (build 11), CloudMessaging 8.10.0

My ios application uses Firebase Cloud Messaging.

I updated VS this morning to Version 8.10.18 (build 11) and also all of the packages
I have:
Xamarin.Firebase.iOS.CloudMessaging 8.10.0
Xamarin.Firebase.iOS.Core 8.10.0
Xamarin.Firebase.iOS.Installations 8.10.0
Xamarin.Firebase.iOS.InstanceID 4.8.0

My app was compiling and working before the update but now gets this error:

Error CS0246: The type or namespace name 'RemoteMessage' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) (CS0246)

Anyone know the fix?

    Looking at the AppDelegate.cs file for the CloudMessaging sample (on git hub) shows the fix is to simply remove the code that references RemoteMessage. Apparently things have been cleaned up so it is no longer needed.

    I removed those lines, updated the packages and things compile and seem to be working.
