Apple seeds Xcode 5.0.2 GM to developers with minor revisions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Apple on Tuesday seeded what is labeled as a Golden Master version of a forthcoming update to its Xcode developer tool, with no major changes listed in the release notes aside from support for iOS 7.0.3.

Xcode


The Xcode 5.0.2 GM seed, dubbed build 5A2005, includes software development kits for the recently released iOS 7.0.3 and OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

As seen above, the pre-release version comes with Xcode's IDE, iOS Simulator and all required tools and frameworks for building OS X and iOS apps.

Apple's last Xcode GM for version 5.0.1 was seeded on Oct. 3, with the public iteration released on Oct. 22 alongside OS X Mavericks. That iteration of the software included assets for iOS 7, suggesting the upcoming GM's changes are mainly focused on iOS 7.0.3, which came with support for iCloud Keychain.

When Xcode 5.0.1 was released, a number of new features were introduced, including a source control menu that creates remote Git repositories for users hosting Mac servers and a debug gauge that displays a live graph of an app's power consumption.

Developers can download the latest Xcode 5.0.2 GM seed via Software Update or Apple's Developer Portal. The most current publicly available version of Xcode 5.0.1 can be downloaded for free from the Mac App Store.

Come December they'll probably release either 5.1 or 5.5 with the new LLVM/Clang/LLDB/LIBCXX/LIBCXXABI/COMPILER-RT/ release.

LLVM/CLang has come a very long way over the last couple of years. Pretty amazing the industry adoption and the flight away from GCC.

I do wonder about ARM support, especially for the 64 bit hardware, as it will be interesting to see if further optimization will take place to speed up the new 64 bit iOS devices.

The LLVM/CLANG folks have done a great job. Even more so with LLDB. Debugging used to be awful compared to what VS offered. LLDB has really closed the gap. It looks like their next project is a new linker, LLD. I wonder if we'll see that in a 5.x release or if that will be part of the Xcode 6.0 release.
