Xcode 6 Beta v6.0 (Mac OS X) | 2.33 GB
Language: English | Release : 2014 | Platform : Intel only
This is the complete Xcode developer toolset for Mac, iPhone, and iPad. It includes the Xcode IDE, iOS Simulator, and all required tools and frameworks for building OS X and iOS apps.
Whats new in Xcode 6
Xcode 6 introduces a radically new way to design and build software. Swift is an innovative new programming language for Cocoa and Cocoa Touch and, when combined with
Xcode tools, makes programming a delightfully live experience. This same live experience permeates throughout Xcode 6 . Live rendering within Interface Builder
displays your hand-written UI code within the design canvas, instantly reflecting changes you type in code. And the new view debugger explodes all the UI layers into a
3D visualization, making it easy to understand how your interface is composed, and identify overlapping or clipping views.
Xcode 6 has deep support for Swift throughout. Its easy to create a brand new app using 100 Swift code, add new Swift code or frameworks to existing apps, and view
documentation in either Swift, Objective-C, or both. All the popular affordances such as Jump to Definition or Open Quickly work equally well with Swift, and even
Objective-C header definitions can be shown in Swift syntax.
Learn more about the Swift programming language
Playgrounds enable the interactive experience of a script language, even though Swift compiles to highly-optimized native code. Type a line of code and the result
appears immediately. If your code runs through a loop, add that line of code to the timeline assistant editor to watch its progression. Display variables in a graph,
inspect each step when drawing a view, or watch an animated SpriteKit scene. When youve perfected your code in the playground, simply move it into your project.
Playgrounds documentation includes tutorials that you can open in a playground, providing an interactive worksheet for experimentation.
Xcodes debugger includes an interactive version of the Swift language, known as the REPL (Read-Eval-Print-Loop). Use Swift syntax to evaluate and interact with your
running app or write new code in a script-like environment. The REPL is available from within LLDB in Xcodes console, or from Terminal.
Interface Builder now displays your custom objects at design time, appearing as they will when your app is run. When you update the code for your custom view, the
Interface Builder design canvas updates automatically with the new look - no need to build and run. APIs let you add properties to the IB inspector for quick design
time changes to your views, and you can even pre-populate the view with example data to get a more accurate feel for the interface.
Storyboards for iOS support UIKit size classes, so you can develop a single universal storyboard that behaves correctly on any iOS device. Choose unique behaviors for
certain device sizes or orientations while keeping the majority of the interface consistent and easy to maintain. Interface Builder can preview any combination of
device and orientation as you design the interface.
Debugging an apps UI is now as simple as a single click to explode the paused apps UI into a 3D rendering of each layer in the stack of views. Easily see why a view
may be clipped or invisible, and inspect and debug constraints and other properties within the inspector. To fix the problem, select a view to quickly jump to its
Xcode 6 includes other new debugging tools, such as debug gauges to monitor I / O usage and an enhanced iCloud gauge. The debug navigator shows even more useful
information, including recorded stack frames and enqueued blocks.
The XCTest framework has been extended to support performance tests, and is fully integrated into Xcode and Xcode Server. Xcode will run your performance tests,
letting you define a baseline performance metric. Each subsequent test run compares performance, displays the change over time, and alerts you to sudden regressions a
code commit could introduce. Performance tests are tightly integrated into Xcodes new logs UI that more clearly shows when test results change, alerting you to
regressions in performance or functionality as you monitor the quality of your app.
Instruments now looks and works more like Xcode. The tracks of recorded data are given even more space, and configuration for how data is collected and viewed is
managed in a unified inspector area. Instruments can even profile your XCTests.
Storyboards for OS X
Storyboards come to OS X, taking advantage of the new View Controller APIs in AppKit. Quickly wire together multiple views, defining containment and animations without
writing code. Storyboards for OS X encourage interfaces that follow Mac standards, so your apps behave the way users expect.
Extensions and Frameworks
iOS developers can now create dynamic frameworks, just like on OS X. Frameworks are a collection of code and resources to encapsulate functionality that is valuable
across multiple projects. Frameworks work perfectly with Extensions, sharing logic that can be used by the main app and the bundled Extensions.
Xcode includes a SpriteKit level designer, SceneKit Support, and support for new features in the particle editor. Its never been easier to create great games for both
iOS and OS X.
Localization in Xcode 6 has been thoroughly upgraded. Base. Strings files are now produced automatically from your code. View how your app looks in different languages
with the Preview Assistant or launch your app in the iOS Simulator as though in other locales. When youre ready, Xcode easily exports and imports industry-standard.
Bots running on OS X Server support triggers that run custom scripts based on rules, more options are available for setting the interval to run an integration, and
bots can be grouped to share configurations. iOS Simulator configurations make it easy to create unique testing scenarios, especially when run by Xcode Server.
