Throughout the week, Apple has made number of software seeds to developers and testers. On Monday, Apple seeded build 6R50 of Mac OS X 10.2.7; on Tuesday, build 7B49 of Mac OS X 10.3 “Panther” as well as Xcode; on Wednesday, build 6R50 of Mac OS X Server 10.2.7.

Well, there ain’t no stupid questions, just stupid people but…
What is seeding exactly? I’m pretty newb to development.
A seed is something planted in the ground……….like softwares, test betas in the hands of developers and testers.
Okay… I hope they’ll water them enough to grow huge and strong.
I think “seeding” is just a word that Apple came up with for beta testing. As you can see, a seed is part of an apple.
Hehe okay. That does make sense.
“Seed” is not a term specific to Apple. Many major developers use the term. It’s simply another way to say “distribute”.
oh man, I can’t wait for Xcode!!!
If it’s even half as fast as CodeWarrior (up from the intolerably slow and crash prone tools Apple has now) it’ll be worth switching to get edit-and-continue and decent OSX integration.
Unfortunately, I have to pay for a CodeWarrior upgrade (which supposedly fixes all the problems with Cocoa) before I get to see Xcode. Pity: I’d stick with the current version for a while (my company is, in fact) for non-Cocoa development.
IBM just released a beta of their very fast (as in optimized code) compilers for OS X.
After downloading it, the readme points to instructions for integrating their new C, C++ and Fortran compilers with Project Builder and Xcode. PB and Xcode examples are included as well.
XCode looks mighty interesting. The most interesting is that you don’t have to compile to test something you have just code. That’s nice. Can’t wait to try it out myself…
