Apple introduces new crash reporting service for developers in latest Xcode 6.3 beta

in Mac Software edited February 2015
After releasing a fresh beta of Xcode 6.3 on Monday, Apple outlined a new crash reporting service that will help developers target, fix and track problems directly from the development tool.

Viewing crash reports in Xcode Organizer.

According to Apple, the new crash reporting service streamlines the development process by helping app makers find and resolve bugs that cause random crashes, as well as other logged problems.

The new system compiles crash logs from apps submitted to the App Store and beta testing service TestFlight with debug symbols, aggregating the resulting data directly into Xcode as crash reports. Coupled with an enhanced Organizer window, developers can more easily triage crashes and fix faulty code.

Developers looking to take advantage of the pre-release Xcode 6.3 service can visit Apple's Crash Organizer help page for more information.

Apple's latest Xcode 6.3 build comes on the heels of new betas of iOS 8.3 and OS X 10.10.3 that were also released today.

    So far iOS 8.2 and Xcode 6.2 are at beta 5. At the same time we have iOS 8.3 and Xcode 6.3 at beta 2. Work in progress. Good to see Apple testing the hell out of these before release.
