About preferred Xcode version for building juce on mac


#1

Hi, jules,
How is it going?

What’s the preferred xcode version to build juce on Mac? or the latest version is the best. I use Xcode version 3.1. Xcode uses gcc , I think.

Thanks!
Leon

Yes, the latest is the best. There must be a new version due out soon, too…

Hi, jules,

There is one option in Project settings in Xcode.
c/c++ Compiler version : GCC. I’d better to choose GCC 4.2, which is the latest version in the dropBox. I want to get the best performance of my project, so I ask about for it. There are other options :GCC 3.3, GCC4.0, GCC system version(4.0), LLVM GCC 4.2 .

BTW, is release version has better performance than debug version for juce lib? or they are almost the same.

Thanks!

Cheers!
Leon

Release libraries normally are smaller and give better performance when compared to debug libraries. Use the latest version of gcc.(I use 4.2.1).

Always choose the newest gcc. And yes, the release build is much, much faster!
