Apple already emails registered developers:

iOS 5 beta 2 and Xcode 4.2 with iOS 5 SDK bea 2 are now available on the iOS Dev Center. Download these new releases today and start developing your apps to take advantage of iCloud Storage, Newsstand Kit, Core Image, GLKit, Twitter, and new Game Center APIs.

The slashdot summary wasn't even that good. Which is it, Slow news day, spam or both?

Re:What is the point of this story? (1)

Random Data (538955) | more than 3 years ago | (#36563248)

If beta 2 is out then it's indicative that iOS 5 isn't too far from public release. There are enough people who aren't registered developers but who may find this interesting that it's worthwhile running.

No no no... the point of a story being on Slashdot is to encourage discussions. All this story has encouraged is for people, like me, to question why it is here. Especially when we are only a single major bug away from a beta 3 or beta 4.

This is madness!

Rumour has it that Slashdot is shortly releasing a special section for Apple users where you only get access if you prove you are a stockbroker or art student with an income in excess of £80,000 p.a. and a man-bag.

Thus you will be able to stay well away from we smelly hippies with our open-toed sandals.

macs4all (973270) | more than 3 years ago | (#36566650)

Speaking as a smelly hippy myself...

It's US smelly hippies; not WE smelly hippies.

The way you can decide which is correct is to remove the word following the "we" or "us" (in this case, "hippies"), and then see which one "sounds" right.

For example, which one "sounds" right?: "...stay away from we...", or "...stay away from us..."?

Ignoring the fact that I'm in the UK and therefore what is grammatically correct in English may vary across the various dialects over the world, doesn't the US constitution contain the phrase "We the people" rather than "Us the people".

And not trying to be pedantic either but it should be "unless you want TO continue sounding like an idiot".

And not trying to be pedantic either but it should be "unless you want TO continue sounding like an idiot".

Ok, strap in, guv'ner, because 'ere we go!

Because it is frankly a seldom-used sentence structure in modern english (on either side of the pond), I had forgotten about the "us" vs. "we" exception that deals with something called "apositives".

The difference is when the us/we is used as the subject of the sentence (e.g. We the People), as opposed to the object of the sentence (e.g. stay away from US).

We/us when used as the subject of a sentence, often occurs in a sentence clause that is separated by a comma. The acutal phrase is "We the people of the United States,...". Note that you could actually remove all the words after the "We", up to the comma, and the sentence would "read" the same. Also note that, besides making nearly all Americans cry, the we/us rule of "sounding right" would obviously be violated by replacing the "we" with "us" at the beginning of the U.S. Constitution.

Here [grammarphobia.com] is a page object that addresses that very subject, using "We the people" as the example.

And, if you consider when the U.S. Constitution was written, and by whom (ex-Brits), I think you would agree that it would have far more "U.K. English" grammatical forms than modern "U.S. English". Besides, I really don't think that "which English" matters on the us/we rule. If I am incorrect on that point, please feel free to educate me.

As for the missing "to" in my last sentence, that would be a "typo", not a grammatical error. I wasn't very awake when I posted my comment, and simply overlooked the missing "to", sorry!

But thanks for pointing it out, you damned dirty hippie! ;-)

Pretty far I'd say (1)

SuperKendall (25149) | more than 3 years ago | (#36564384)

I don't have beta 2 yet, but people had issues with beta 1... (which is to be expected from a beta after all!).

But there have been several iterations of iOS before, so I think it's at least september before we see iOS5 delivered.

How you will know the release is really close, is when developers are allowed to submit iOS5 applications...

Re:What is the point of this story? (1)

tm2b (42473) | more than 3 years ago | (#36564970)

No. Apple (in fact, Jobs at the WDCC) already announced that iOS 5 is this Fall.

And, here's the Apple Press Release. [apple.com]

Release Notes (4, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#36563298)

Notes and Known Issues

The following issues relate to using the 5.0 SDK to develop code.
Accounts

        When creating an iCloud account you can use any Apple ID provided it is a full email address and not a MobileMe account. If you have a MobileMe account, you can copy data from that account to an iCloud account to use during testing. You can find more information on iCloud at: http://developer.apple.com/icloud

        When setting up an iCloud or MobileMe account using the setup assistant and leaving Find My iPhone on, it might actually turn Find my iPhone off after the setup. Please verify in Settings/Mail, Contacts, Calendar/YourAccount that Find my iPhone is toggled On after leaving the setup assistant.

        There is a problem finding a device using Find My iPhone on the MobileMe website (www.me.com) when switching from iCloud back to MobileMe. To workaround this issue:

                On the device go to Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendar->@me.com and Toggle Find My iPhone off and back on. Now the device should show up on MobileMe website.

        It is recommended that you disable Bookmarks on multiple accounts. If they are enabled, the results might be undefined.

        FIXED: When deleting a MobileMe account, an incorrect message is displayed on the device that says “This will delete all Photo Stream Photos from your device”. You can ignore this message.

Address Book

        FIXED: Adding a CardDAV account of any kind (Yahoo, Address Book Server, etc) and then removing the account will result in the loss of the UI button to add a new contact. The button will not appear under Contacts App or the Contacts button under the Phone app.

        FIXED: Modifying the fields of an iCloud contact from an iOS device that was not the original source of the contact causes the contact’s photo to disappear on other iOS devices. The image is still there but it is not fetched properly.

AirPlay

        Starting in iOS 5.0, video content in applications and websites are AirPlay-enabled by default.

        iOS 5.0 supports AirPlay of video via AV Foundation.

        The Apple TV screen saver may degrade mirroring performance over AirPlay. The screen saver can be disabled in Apple TV settings.

Apple TV

        Apple TV Software beta enables users to mirror the contents of an iPad 2 to an Apple TV (2nd generation) using AirPlay. This beta software also enables Photo Stream on Apple TV so users can access photos stored in iCloud. Apple TV Software beta is being provided to test the latest AirPlay functionality with your iOS 5 apps and web sites. If you wish to install Apple TV Software beta on your device, you must first register your device UDID in the iOS Developer Program Portal.

Assistant

        When signing in with a Classic MobileMe account via iOS 5.0 Setup Assistant, it offers iCloud Backup.

Audio

        Using voice chat in iOS 5 requires setting the kAudioSessionMode_VoiceChat mode on the Audio Session, or setting the AVAudioSessionModeVoiceChat mode on the AVAudioSession object.

        In iOS 5 beta1, voice chat is currently not working on iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3rd generation devices.

Bluetooth

        FIXED: When connected to Personal Hot Spot via Bluetooth, the internet connection for web browsing is not successful.

CalDav

        FIXED: Despite turning off reminder sync with an iCloud account, editing in the reminders app displays the option to make a new reminder list under iCloud. By doing so, the list and to do items under the list will sync to other devices.

        NEW: After creating a recurring event locally on the device, the device stops syncing after hitting an error on merge. Removing and re-adding the account acts as workaround for this.

Calendar

        FIXED: When making a change to calendar syncing, like having more than one account on the device and turning on or off one of the account's calendar syncing, changes may not show up on the calendar UI. To resolve this, kill the calendar app through app switcher and launch it again.

        NEW: All MobileMe calendars were duplicated after turning calendar syncing off and back on.

        NEW: If you launch or manually refresh Calendars on an iPad, your calendars might disappear and you will have to tap "Show All Calendars" to display them again.

GameKit

        FIXED: In games that support “Turn-Based Matches” a player cannot end a match unless all players end the match.

        Match data for turn based matches is currently limited to 4 KB of data.

        In iOS 5.0, notifications for Game Center are off by default. To enable notifications go to Settings->Notifications->Game Center-> and change the Alert Style from None to Banners or Alerts.

        FIXED: Attempting to present a GKPeerPickerController object causes an iPhone 4 to dim and become 'modal', but the peer picker never appears.

Graphics

        NEW: In the iOS 5 beta 2, the data type of the center property of GLKSkyboxEffect of the GLKit framework has been changed from GLfloat * to GLKVector3.

        FIXED: In the iOS 5 beta, the envColor property and the colorMaterialEnabled property of the GLKEffectPropertyTexture class (in the GLKit framework) are not operational.

        FIXED: In the iOS 5 beta, the constantColor property of the GLKBaseEffect class (in the GLKit framework) does not report the correct value in gdb.

        FIXED: In the iOS 5 beta, the GLKReflectionMapEffect class (in the GLKit framework) requires either the texture2d0 property, the texture2d1 property, or both configured with a valid texture name (for example, texture2d0.glName = myTextureName) in order to function properly. If one of these properties is not configured, you will get no reflection map rendering and a shader compilation error.

                If you don’t have a texture2d you intend to use with the GLKReflectionMapEffect class, the following code may be added as a workaround to augment the reflection map effect with a base texture:

                GLuint tempTexName;

                GLfloat texels[] = { 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f };

                glGenTextures(1, &tempTexName);

                glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, tempTexName);

                glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER,

                          GL_LINEAR);

                glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA, 1, 1, 0,

                          GL_RGBA, GL_FLOAT, texels);

                reflectionMapEffect.texture2d0.glName = tempTexName;

        FIXED: In the iOS 5 beta, disabling any of the three light parameters (light0, light1 or light2 ) of GLKBaseEffect does not work.

                Since the GLKReflectionMapEffect class inherits from GLKBaseEffect, the same behavior is observed for lights used with GLKReflectionMapEffect.

iBooks

        iBooks 1.2.2 may fail to display some text or images in books. Please update to iBooks 1.3 in the App Store.

        FIXED: Newer PDFs added to iBooks will not be added to subsequent backups.

iCloud Backup

        As this is beta software it is recommended that you do not use the iCloud services to store any critical data or information. If you enable iCloud Backup, automatic backup with iTunes when syncing will be disabled. We suggest you also manually back up your device with iTunes.

        In the iOS 5 beta, support for data protection in iCloud Backup is unavailable. Apps that have protected files will not have any of their data or metadata backed up as a result.

        NEW: After restoring, you may not be able to back up again because the device still thinks it's restoring. To workaround this issue try syncing apps or media that are missing form iTunes or try deleting your iCloud account and adding it back.

        NEW: If you delete your backup, the feature will be disabled but settings may still indicate that it is enabled and you will have to toggle the BackUp to Cloud switch in Settings.

iCloud Storage

        During the iOS 5.0 beta period, any documents stored on the servers might be purged periodically before GM. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you do not store any critical documents or information on the servers.

        If your application is using the NSMetadataQuery class, you must set a predicate, even though the predicate itself is ignored.

        The Foundation framework doesn't include the team ID when looking for an app's mobile documents container. The Team ID must be included at the beginning of the identifier string passed to the URLForUbiquityContainerIdentifier: method.

        NEW: In this beta, the setSortDescriptors: method of NSMetadataQuery is not supported.

        NEW: In this beta, if you want to use iCloud, you have to manually specify various container identifiers (your application’s Display set) within an Entitlements file for both of your Mac OS X and iOS projects.

        NEW: There are issues using the Cloud Storage document API in conjunction with protected data which can lead to data corruption.

        NEW: In this beta, document-based applications cannot always detect when files change, move, or are deleted out from underneath them.

        NEW: In this beta, file presenters (objects that adopt the NSFilePresenter protocol) do not receive some of the messages that they're supposed to receive, especially:

                presentedItemDidChange

                presentedSubitemDidAppearAtURL:

                presentedSubitemDidChangeAtURL:

        You can workaround this by implementing the relinquishPresentedItemToWriter: method and checking to see if the writer actually wrote when your file presenter reacquires. You can also use FSEvents to observe file system changes

        NEW: In this beta, messages about changes to files in a directory are not getting delivered to objects that adopt the NSFilePresenter protocol.

        While reporting a bug related to the iCloud storage interfaces, please include the logs collected during your debugging session. To generate these logs, you must install a special debug profile on your device.

        The debug profile can be obtained from http://connect.apple.com. This profile enables the generation of debug logs that are needed to diagnose any problems using iCloud storage. The instructions to collect the logs are:

                Install the profile. (The easiest way to do this is to mail it to yourself and open the attachment on their device.)

                Reproduce the bug.

                Sync with iTunes to pull the logs off your device.

                Attach the logs to your bug report. You can find the logs in ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/DeviceName/DiagnosticLogs.

        These logs can grow large quickly, so you should remove the profile after you have reproduced the problem and pulled the logs for the bug report.

iMessage

        NEW: iMessage seed 2 will be unable to communicate with iMessage users on seed 1.

        FIXED: Swiping the iMessage on/off switch and the MMS messaging on/off switch in Settings crashes it. Just tapping or toggling does not crash settings.

        FIXED: In an iMessage conversation, video/audio attachments cannot be viewed in the transcript on either side of the conversation.

iTunes

The version of iTunes that comes with beta 2 cannot sync devices that have the beta 1 software installed. To avoid this problem, do the following:

        Sync any devices that have beta 1 installed to the version of iTunes that came with beta 1.

        Upgrade iTunes to the version that comes with beta 2.

        Connect the device and install the beta 2 software. (Understand that you might see a failure to sync error when you first connect the device.)

        After installing the beta 2 software, restore from your the backup you made in step 1.

MMS

        NEW: Sending an MMS of large videos does not work.

Photo Adjustments

        If you apply red-eye adjustments in iOS, and import your image into the iPhoto seed build, the red-eye adjustments will not appear on that image in iPhoto. As a result, subsequent syncing of your image back to the iOS device from iPhoto will not show the red-eye adjustments.

Reminders

NEW: The Reminders application does not send notifications for reminders that are based upon the entry (and/or exit) of a location if there is no date associated with the reminder.
Settings

        NEW: The “Back Up Now” button is enabled without the backup data class being enabled for the account.

        NEW: If you bring up the keyboard of the terms in Settings->General->Software Update, you cannot dismiss it. You have to force quit Settings to get out.

Springboard

        Push and local notifications for apps appear in the new Notification Center in iOS 5.0. Notification Center displays notifications that are considered "unread". In order to accommodate push and local notifications that have no "unread" status, developers can use their application badge count to trigger a clearing of notifications from Notification Center. When an application clears its badge count (by setting it to zero), iOS 5 will clear its notifications from Notification Center.

        Developers are strongly encouraged not to run or debug applications on the device prior to completing the device's setup assistant. This will lead to unexpected behavior and will be a prevented operation in a future release.

UI Automation

        The play and record buttons in the Automation instrument script editor may not work properly after targeting an application that was launched by a trace session and has ended. They may also not work if you target an application that was suspended. If you run into this problem and it persists, you may need to close and reopen the trace document to get back into a functional state.

        When capturing actions into a script using the Automation instrument, interfaces with web views or table cells that contain a high number of off screen elements may take an extremely long time before returning with an expression.

        The lock() and unlock() functions of UIATarget have been replaced with the lockForDuration() function.

        Instruments overwrites the loaded automation script, even if another program is editing it.

        Starting iOS 5.0, beta 2 you can now trigger the execution of a UI Automation script on an iOS device from the host terminal by using the instruments tool. The command is:

                instruments -w -t

UIKit

        NEW: Returning nil from the tableView:viewForHeaderInSection: method (or its footer equivalent) is no longer sufficient to hide a header. You must override tableView:heightForHeaderInSection: and return 0.0 to hide a header.

        In the iOS 5 beta, the UITableView class has two methods to move one cell from one row to another with defined parameters. These APIs are:

                moveSection:toSection:

                moveRowAtIndexPath:toIndexPath:

        Starting in iOS 5, the exclusiveTouch property of UIControl defaults to YES.

        Using the UIWebView class in Interface Builder, setting transparent background color is possible in iOS 5. Developers compiling against the new SDK can check their XIB for the UIWebView transparent setting.

        In the iOS 5 beta, the UINavigationBar, UIToolbar, and UITabBar implementations have changed so that the drawRect: method is not called on instances of these classes unless it is implemented in a subclass. Apps that have re-implemented drawRect: in a category on any of these classes will find that the drawRect: method isn't called. UIKit does link-checking to keep the method from being called in apps linked before iOS 5 but does not support this design on iOS 5 or later. Apps can either:

                Use the customization API for bars that in iOS 5 and later, which is the preferred way.

                Subclass UINavigationBar (or the other bar classes) and override drawRect: in the subclass.

        The indexPathForRow:inSection:, section, and row methods of NSIndexPath now use NSInteger instead of NSUInteger, so that these types match with methods defined on UITableView.

        There is a known issue with presenting a UIVideoEditorControllerobject where it doesn't show the selected video, which appears blank instead. In certain cases it may also crash.

        Touch events are not getting forwarded to the view in the cameraOverlayView property of UIImagePickerController.

        NEW: The imagePickerController:didFinishPickingMediaWithInfo: method of UIImagePickerController is not returning a URL to the video when recording is complete.

        NEW: When creating a new appointment in calendar app on a device using 24 hr clock, you cannot select an hour value greater than 12. The date-time picker value sets current weekday to be the same as previous day (e.g: a An appointment on Tuesday will be set as Monday).

        NEW: We have changed the behavior of scrollToRowAtIndexPath:atScrollPosition:animated: such that UITableViewScrollPositionTop and UITableViewScrollPositionBottom now adjust for the top and bottom portions of the contentInset property.

WebKit

        NEW: In iOS 5.0 beta 2, a new inherited CSS property, -webkit-overflow-scrolling, is available. The value touch allows the web developer to opt in to native-style scrolling in an overflow:scroll element. The default value for this property is auto.

        The WebKit framework has picked up a newer WebKit engine, which closely matches Safari 5.1. Some areas to be aware of with the new WebKit framework on iOS:

                There is a new HTML5-compliant parser.

                Text layout width may change slightly because word-rounding behavior now has floating-point-based precision.

                There is improved validation of the form field, which includes removing leading zeros and number formatting.

                Touch events are now supported on input fields.

                window.onerror is now supported.

WiFi Syncing

        In iOS 5.0 beta 2, wireless syncing is now available for the Mac. It requires iTunes 10.5 beta 2 and OS X 10.6.8 or Lion. You will see an option to enable wireless syncing when you connect your device to iTunes with the USB cable. It is recommended you perform your initial sync with a cable after restoring your device.

                Wireless syncing is triggered automatically when the device is connected to power and on the same network as the paired computer. Or, you can manually trigger a sync from iTunes or from Settings -> General -> iTunes Sync (same network as paired computer required). Be sure your device is plugged into a power source when performing Wireless syncs.

                If you find issues with apps, media and/or photos synced to your device, you can reset then resync. From Settings -> General -> Reset, choose Erase all Content and Settings. Then reconnect to iTunes and sync again.

        In this beta, iTunes may incorrectly report Photos as "Other" in the capacity bar. Photo syncing otherwise works as expected.

Xcode

        You are strongly encouraged to back up your device using iTunes before restoring.

        In some cases, Xcode 4.2 Organizer does not display a device that is in restore mode. As a workaround you can use iTunes to restore.

        On some desktop machines, Xcode's memory usage inflates incredibly fast while restoring a device or copying an IPSW. As a workaround use iTunes to restore.

        Sometimes Xcode 4.2 switches to a wrong scheme or run destination after an on-disk update.

        In this beta, crash logs (either unsymbolicated or symbolicated) do not appear in Xcode Organizer. To make them appear in the Xcode Organizer, you will have to rename the device.

        NEW: In iOS 5.0 beta 2, the iOS Simulator is not compatible with previous releases of the iCloud Developer Seed for OS X. It is highly recommended that you update to the latest iCloud Developer Seed to ensure compatibility.

So the first comment that actually pertains to the story ... and it gets modded to -1. Apparently it's an editor with his infinite modpoints too. They seem to always use "Overrated" or something. Their instamods-to-oblivion never seem to have an adjective like "Flamebait" or "Troll".

To the editor who modded that down: good job, numbnuts! Maybe you can give him some fake "503 SERIVCE NOT AVAILABLE" error pages too, like the non-confrontational coward you are. You know, the ones that magically go away when you use a proxy. That'll show him who's the bigger man!

How about you fuckers put a little less effort into micromanaging the discussions and a little more into oh, I dunno, figuring out how to use a spell-checker for the front page? Try it sometime, you lazy substandard bastards. In this economy there are lots of people who would be happy to replace you and do a better job. Many of them even understand how to use English grammar. At some point management might even figure that out!

Oh yeah, and for your amateurish attempts at writing JavaScript, I have two words for you: test server. It's customary to use one before you start running that code in a production environment. No, really, I'm serious. With all the Slashvertisement book reviews you're running I'm confident you can afford a little low-volume test server for your intranet.

Just think of how much a consultant would have charged you for these bits of common sense.

However, what IS it with slashdot?!? They have got to have some of THE worst web-coders on the planet!

I have never seen another site with so many coding errors. It's like the site is coded by six year olds (with apologies to all six year olds, everywhere). Several recent and ridiculously annoying errors that come to mind are:

1. Banner ad partially obscures the login "dialog". Finally fixed, but it took WEEKS to fix that simple issue.

2. When replying through a "reply" email link (in my case, from gmail), when you get the "mini-thread", and click the "Reply" link on that page on slashdot (which opens up the form that allows you to actually, uh, TYPE your reply), as soon as you click in that text field (where you are supposed to, uh, TYPE), the browser immediately scrolls to the top of the "mini-thread". Scroll down. Click. Back to the TOP we go!. The ONLY thing that seems to stop that behavior is to mash on the PageDn key a bunch of times, then click in the field. And even THAT seems to take several trips back up to the top of the page before the text cursor will "stay put" in the edit field, so that you can, uh, actually TYPE. THAT BEHAVIOR HAS EXISTED EVER SINCE THE NEW LAYOUT, AND STILL ISN'T FIXED!

3. Another annoyance with the "mini-thread" page is that the "Log In" link simply doesn't work. If you happen to be logged in already, fine. But if not, you CANNOT log in to post your reply, and must either post as AC, OR open the main Slashdot page, and Log In there (which I assumes creates a session cookie).

4. Speaking of Logging In, if you Log In from within a "story", you are immediately bounced OUT of the story, and taken to the main Slashdot page.

5. When clicking the "Submit" button after entering a comment, about 1 time in 20 (sometimes more often), it never seems to come back from the "spinning wheel" bit, or, sometimes you get the dreaded "The resource is no longer valid" error. WTF IS UP WITH THAT?!?!? And it seems to have NOTHING to do with any "timeout" (or any REASONABLE timeout).

6. When viewing stories past the first page-full (in other words, if you have clicked the "More Stories" button), actually ENTERING one of those stories and then hitting the "back" button (to get back to the list of stories) immediately goes back to the "first" page of stores, with NONE of the stories past that page visible again (just like it is when you first enter slashdot's main page). This isn't so bad when the story you were looking at is only one "more stories"-click away; but on non-slow news days, sometimes stories are so rapidly pushed off the main page, that it is common to be browsing stories that are two or more pages "down" from the main page, and it gets to be QUITE annoying.

I hasten to add that, in my experience with the world-wide-web view of the internet, which goes back to at least 1992 (or earlier) I have NEVER encountered ANY of these problems on ANY "forum"-type website. Never, ever, ever. And its doubly sad, considering Slashdot is supposed to be a "geek" site. You'd think with all the unemployed neckbeards sitting around, that Slashdot would be able to find at least ONE decent web developer.

But apparently not...

And that comment about test servers was right on. If slashdot even uses them, it sure doesn't seem to then add the TESTING phase before changes are made "live".

I hate xcode 4 (0)

mark-t (151149) | more than 3 years ago | (#36563318)

When I have errors in my code, or places in the code that produces warnings, I like my IDE to move the cursor to the actual line of code where the issue is.

This used to work just fine in xcode 3, but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to replicate that behaviour in xcode 4. What I've always had to do is switch window panes to look at the error log, find the line number where the issue is, and then manually go there in that file.

Seriously... I might as well just be using an ordinary text editor and a command line compiler.

Re:I hate xcode 4 (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#36563346)

You might be running into a bug - if your source isn't somewhere below the project in the filesystem, then going to warnings doesn't work (it doesn't handle the ../ at the start of the path to the source file for some reason).

Re:I hate xcode 4 (2)

mark-t (151149) | more than 3 years ago | (#36563702)

You're kidding.

Seriously.... I thought the problem was with xcode 4.

And come to think of it, I'm not entirely sure that this wouldn't have been an issue with xcode 3, since I switched to a different directory layout for my projects only a few days before I upgraded from xcode 3... although I never made the connection between that and the problems I was having because all the existing projects were already compiling cleanly and without warning or errors, so as far as I could see, only the new xcode projects were getting affected.

Re:I hate xcode 4 (1)

willy_me (212994) | more than 3 years ago | (#36564328)

I've found that upgrading projects to Xcode4 tends to cause problems. Just create a new project then import the files. This solved the problems that I had with the new xcode.

With regards to associating debugging output to the code, xcode4 is vastly superior to xcode3. The previous xcode was a simplified IDE, just an editor that made calls to gcc/gdb for compiling and debugging. The new xcode leverages the work done with llvm and clang. It parses your code as you type so it can do proper code completion and indicates broken code. When I say proper I mean it scans files for types, functions, etc. and actually understands the code. Linked files are also scanned. Notice that when the debugger indicates an error in a source file, you can edit that file by inserting/removing space and xcode will still be able to bring you to the actual error. The previous version just brought you to the same line, even if your code had moved away from that line.

So xcode4 is the first real attempt at a proper IDE - similar to what Microsoft has with their "Visual" programs. Apple had to ditch gcc in order to make it work which also required writing a new compiler - so it was a non-trivial amount of work. Expect it to get more and more refined as time goes on as xcode4 is actually built on a solid foundation, unlike xcode3.

In what way is not being able to handle arbitrary paths to your source code not a problem in Xcode 4? If this turns out to be the issue, you should report the bug to Apple.

I haven't upgraded to Xcode 4 yet because of all the stuff I've read mainly on the Xcode mail list about how bad it is. If the people who have problems report them to Apple, hopefully, it won't stay bad.

What I'd give to be able to remove this vagazzle [urbandictionary.com] from my machines and have Apple ship something like the GNUStep Makefiles with cross compiler support.

Apple have some horrendously greasy engineering. The .mac / iweb pages were an example of that -- reams of javascript and javascript based redirects to display a static html document in the client browser. The situation with XCode is the same, it's overly complex and much less efficient than the command line toolchain used behind the scenes.

What's wrong with clicking the error / warning icon in the navigation pane? It shows me my warning, I click the warning and it shows the appropriate file with the offending line highlighted in yellow. Click the warning again, and it will pulse the warning highlight in your source again, no line hunting necessary.

Is your complaint that Xcode just doesn't reposition your cursor? The highlight and caret where the warning occurs isn't enough?

Re:I hate xcode 4 (1)

The behaviour you are describing is what I had always experienced with xcode 3. It seems to have stopped working that way for me with any new projects I created with xcode 4. Another poster above has given me some insight into what the problem may be, however... and I will test this more thoroughly when I get home tonight.

What's wrong is that it doesn't always work. If the source file is not in the project root directory, it won't do what you think it will. Instead, it will just open the source file at the top. Bugs filed, haven't seen it fixed in latest. Pain in the arse.

Re:I hate xcode 4 (1)

dgatwood (11270) | more than 3 years ago | (#36570086)

I've seen this bug, too, with the build-and-analyze stuff. I think the bug that mine was a dup of has been fixed already, so your problem might just go away in the Xcode build that came with this SDK beta.

If it's still there, go back to your bugs and if you haven't already, attach a test project that reproduces the bug along with detailed steps to reproduce. That tends to make these sorts of problems a lot easier to find and fix. If it hasn't been fixed by now, that probably means that it only reproduces with certain project settings or structure, so without attaching a test project, you might be waiting a long time for them to find and fix the bug. :-)

At least in my case, I found that there are two ways to get lists of errors, and that when the error messages are displayed in the leftmost column, they don't jump to the right line in the file, but when they are displayed in the next column over, they do. Dig around and see if you can find another view that displays those same errors. If you can, I'd imagine you'll find that it will work.

Re:I hate xcode 4 (1)

Trillan (597339) | more than 3 years ago | (#36564134)

There's a couple minor bugs that can cause this. Are you using the latest released Xcode 4? At least one of the causes was fixed in a .0.1 release.

Other than that, search StackOverflow, etc.

Important thing to know is that your experience isn't typical. There IS a fix. Sorry I can't give you details; I haven't run into this myself, but discussed in passing with someone who had hit it.

Re:I hate xcode 4 (1)

mark-t (151149) | more than 3 years ago | (#36565620)

It has been pointed out to me that the problem may have been getting caused by the fact that it happens to be the case that all of my newer projects do not have the source files underneath the project folder, because this produces the exact same behaviour when there are errors or warnings in the files as what I experienced.

Serious Callers Only (1022605) | more than 3 years ago | (#36565898)

His experience absolutely is typical, in that he has experienced inexplicable, infuriating and inconsistent behaviour from Xcode. Xcode 3 was never great, but 4.x is beta software, which has been rushed out the door without proper quality testing, and as of 4.2, still has serious issues (not just this one). I upgraded a few weeks ago to 4.0.2 as I saw it was now the official release version of Xcode, and am now realising that was a serious mistake. Just as one example, opening the archives window causes huge slowdowns and delays of 30 seconds or so before I can select a menu or perform any action related to archives. I haven't pinned down the reason yet, but that sort of bug never should have made it into production.

Re:I hate xcode 4 (1)

Trillan (597339) | more than 3 years ago | (#36578206)

You're kidding right? Only a few releases ago, Xcode 3 produced code that hard crashed on armv6. A few months before that, it produced code that potentially crashed on startup, but only when re-signed by Apple's keys.

I can't remember the last time I fought code signing problems for a full day, but I can assure you it was with Xcode 3 not 4.

This is the way it is, and if anything it's getting better as time goes on.
