XCode 4.3.1 and iOS 5.1


#1

Anyone taken the plunge yet?

I’m still retreating in 4.2 land after hearing horror stories about 4.3. Perhaps 4.3.1 is better? Let me know. Thanks


#2

My iOS apps still run on iOS 5.1, and still build clean on 4.3.1 against the 5.1 SDK.

I don’t know that 4.3 was really a ‘horror story’. More of a C++2011 bump. I think that the bulk of the stuff was code like this:

int something
.
.
.
something = 0xFFEEDDCC;

Prior to C++2011, 0xFFEEDDCC was generally truncated to 32 bit. Now that larger literals, etc. are permitted, it is simply converted to a great big (positive) value. Too big to fit in the signed, 32 bit int (notice the MSB was 1, generally indicated a negative twos-complement number).


#3

The upgrade to Xcode 4.3.1 worked fine for me. Actually, I have the feeling Xcode 4.3.1 is faster.

Good to know folks. Thanks. I will take the plunge.
