XCode 1.5

Apple released Xcode v1.5 today. Some really nice new features in there, but the 2 that will likely affect me the most are:

  • CodeSense Autocompletion for java code (yay!)
  • Subversion SCM integration

The CodeSense Autocompletion is so totally helpful for me, since I don't seem to keep the entire java class library in my head, so being prompted is a nice way to skip the JavaDocs (or even Google - yes, I am a Google-enabled developer ;-) )

Subversion should be nice, since it's apparently a smoother SCM than CVS is, and apparently handles packages and bundles better (which is important for dealing with WebObjects projects. I say apparently because I haven't tested it yet. I've downloaded Wilfredo Sanchez' Subversion package for MacOSX and will try that out ASAP

The Apple FTP servers were pretty swamped this morning, but after about 10 attempts I got a slot, and grabbed the image sections. Bandwidth was decent, averaging about 400K/sec for the duration, so their strategy of limiting simultaneous users works once you get in.

UPDATE: Looks like XCode doesn't like using the local file:///... style of repository, or perhaps there is something missing. It's claiming that it's missing:

dyld: /usr/local/subversion/bin/svn can't open library: /usr/local/apache/lib/libaprutil-0.0.dylib (No such file or directory, errno = 2)
