Apple releases Xcode 5 into the Mac App Store

If you're an iOS or Mac developer, you'll already be familiar with Xcode for OS X. And, to coincide with todays public release of iOS 7 Apple has pushed version 5.0 into the Mac App Store. Here's what's new:

  • Includes SDKs for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and iOS 7.
  • LLVM compiler builds 64-bit apps for iOS 7.
  • Automatic Configuration enables services like iCloud and Game Center with one click.
  • Test Navigator helps you quickly add, edit, and run unit tests.
  • Test Assistants display tests and code side-by-side for test driven development.
  • Auto Layout in IB can generate constraints automatically, or allow free-form design.
  • Preview Assistant demonstrates your UI in portrait or landscape, for iOS 6 or iOS 7.
  • Asset Catalog organizes all your project’s images in a single .xcassets archive.
  • Debug Gauges show CPU, memory, iCloud, and OpenGL ES usage at a glance.
  • Source Control top-level menu enables context sensitive branching and merging.
  • Modules build setting speeds compile times, and enables auto-linking system frameworks.

Weighing in at just under 2GB in size, probably wise to set this one off, grab a beverage, and come back a little later. Grab it now at the download link below.
