  Ten Things I Dig About Xcode

I agree completely. I hadn't really used the new versions of XCode/IB until I got my copy of Panter. I had no idea what I was in for with regards to stability. And because I did an archive and install when installing Panther the frameworks for the older versions aren't there so I can't run PB. I've been reluctant to copy things over to try to make the old versions work, but I'm afraid I may not have a choice.


Is anyone else finding IB especially to be very crash prone? I find a lot of errors with "inconsistencies" which then lead to complete meltdowns. Often I can't even get the nib file open to fix it.


Anyway yes this is an early iteration, but it's still a released product and I hope for apple's sake that my experience isn't the norm.

    Wonder if it's just my configuration, but I also found XCode (1.0.1 running on Panther 10.3.1) unstable to the point of being unusable! It also seems to lack the flexibility of ProjectBuilder, e.g. reordering or moving files between build phases.

    One of the most annoying things is files I add to my project tend to disappear from it when I close and reopen it.

    Can only hope Apple quickly releases a decent upgrade. Otherwise, I wonder what are my options for reinstalling ProjectBuilder on top of the current Dev Tools...

      Got around my above problems. Looks like this happens when using sub-projects... Maybe something wrong with the project I was including. Anyway it caused the including project to behave very strangely, basically ignoring any attempt at changing anything. Reordering or moving files now works.

      Think you have to be careful and save copies frequently in case your project becomes corrupted for some reason...
