Apple recently provided developers with a new pre-release beta of Xcode 1.5, an upgrade to Mac OS X’s suite of development tools. Release notes for the beta say that Version 1.5 will feature dead-code stripping, code completion for Java, support for the Subversion source-code control system, AppleScriptable CodeWarrior importing, and AppleScript support in the native build system. Xcode 1.5 will also boast speed improvements, Ant templates, faster editor performance, remote debugging, and an enhanced debugger with a globals browser and memory browser.

Any news on when it may be open to the public? Looks like some fun new featurs for us Java people.
I do prefer CodeWarrior, and I think bundled browsers and dev systems are break of my freedom, by the way!..
is apple closing out other IDE makers?
is apple making certain features of their OS only available when you use safari?
that is the difference between MS and Apple/Linux, MS bundles and forces you to use it by linking it to OS features, Apple and Linux do not.
XCode has always annoyed me at how buggy and slow it seemed to be. I like how it works and the features and such, but it sometimes pissed me off when it’d suddenly crash for no apparent reason while trying to open a source file or it’d take a minute to open a huge log file or something. I’m looking forward to the new release!
Yeah, completely agree, but I still juse it. Everyday …
Sure would be nice if Apple supported GCJ’s ability to compile java source (and class) files to native. Including this directly into XCode would be such a nice feature.
Probably would take some contributions to this portion of GCJ, but nonetheless it would be well worth it.
