what difference between paml and xaml in avalonia?

paml used to be when the project was known as Perspex
and the earlier version of the previewer relied on different extension to work correctly
otherwise visual studio would try to use wpf previewer
basically no difference now, you should use xaml

oh... ok
and is there any way to precompile avalonia xaml?

not yet
it has to be parsed at runtime
its pretty quick though now
it used to be way slower
im sure it must be possible to integrate Portable.Xaml with some kind of roslyn code generator
