I just wanted to share some thoughts about something i’m struggling with.
We are developing commercial software and we target the 10.5 sdk. Most of our machines are running 10.6, me as the head developer still run 10.5.8. This is because i have the feeling that if i’m running 10.6 and targeting 10.5 i’ll never be completely sure if it really works on 10.5. Jules experienced the same problem as i pointed out that his compiled binaries of the IntroJucer and Jucemo (1_52) on sourceforge crash when run on 10.5.8. They run fine in 10.6, but they are targeted for 10.5.
Quite a few of our customers are still running 10.5 (in the VJ community where are active 10.5.8 is still regarded as a better performing (graphically) OS than 10.6, especially if you run 10.6 on an older machine), so i really can’t start targeting 10.6.
I had some strange issues with debugging strings lately with the latest version from the tip, so i though it was time to upgrade to a newer version of Xcode, but the only xcode version you can download from the apple site are 3.2.6 and 4 and they both run only on 10.6. Am i really the only one to think this is strange?
So how about you guys, how do you tackle this, and does someone have a (legal) link to a 3.2.5 version of XCode (i think 3.2.5 is the latest version of Xcode that still runs on 10.5).
