Xcode 4 – Great!

Xcode 4 took a little while to get used to, but as I’ve been using it more, I’ve been liking it more.

The change initially is significant, and there were new ways of doing things and certain other things that had to be rethought altogether. But now, I’m starting to choose to use Xcode 4 when I have the choice, so I think I’ve got used to it

I recently released some new project files for Tesseract OCR cocoa, and they are built with Xcode 4 now. The simplification in the build system and the linking of the frameworks is a vast improvement. Workspaces are a gift to this type of multi-project build. 🙂

The only issue I have is that it doesn’t support 10.5 or PPC, so SQLEditor is stuck on Xcode 3 for a while longer.

    Annoyingly it seems Apple released another build (the final 4.1 version) yesterday – I had hoped Apple would retag the preview as the release so I could keep using the copy I installed last week!

    What’s another 4+ GB between friends?

    We badly need diff upgrades for XCode – or something to reduce the download size (like a selective package installer and updater like aptitude)
