Part I: What's New? >  Chapter 2: Getting Comfortable with Xcode 4

Chapter 2: Getting Comfortable with Xcode 4

Apple officially announced Xcode 4 at WWDC 2010 (June 2010), and the beta version was available to attendees. It was in beta for quite a while (around 9 months) and a Gold Master was made available through iOS/Mac developer center in February 2011. Weeks later, in March, Xcode 4 was officially released and developers who subscribe to the iOS or Mac developer programs were able to get it for free. Others were able to buy it from the Mac App Store.

Xcode 4 is a completely rewritten IDE (integrated development environment) replacing Xcode 3. The major features include, but are not limited to, single window editing, navigators, integrated Interface Builder, an integrated Git version control system, and schemes (a new way to configure and share build settings in your product). You learn in detail about every major feature in this chapter.
