Apple has released their 4th preview of Xcode 4 to developers today. If you’re a developer go get it!
This is a pre-release version of Xcode 4, a major new release of Xcode for both Mac and iOS development. This release requires Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and includes the iOS SDK 4.1, to develop apps for Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Please review the Release Notes and Readme before installing this software.
Apple has just released the firmware iOS 4.2 Beta 3, together with SDK and iTunes 10.1 Beta 2. The SDK is build 10M2423 and the firmware is build 8C5115c. iTunes 10.1 Beta 2 is a pre-release version to support testing of printing from iOS apps. Developers can download the firmware, SDK, and iTunes from the iPhone Developer Center.
According to 9to5Mac, new pre-release of upcoming iOS 4 reveals new feature of exporting video to Facebook. As it can be seen from the screenshot of the code, the maximum height and width of the video will probably be 480 pixels, and the maximum frame rate will be 30 frames per second.
Previously Apple supported export to e-mail, Mobile Me, MMS and YouTube (second picture above).
Apple released new firmware 3.0 beta4. It is only for developers' use and it requires iTunes 8.2.
Several developers report a pink screen error. When usiing iTunes 8.2 the screen should be pink for a few seconds and then the upgrade process will start. Others report that pink screen disappears after reboot.
Apple pre-released new version of iTunes 8.2. It is avaliable only for developers. The big change is a support for Blu-Ray. This leaves us to imagine that in the future Apple will add support reading/recognizing Blu-Ray discs
iPhone OS 2.1 beta 3 is now available and is to be used for testing only. View the Pre-Installation Advisory for iPhone OS 2.1 beta 3, Readme, and Release Notes before installing the new versions of the iPhone OS and SDK. As a reminder, pre-release software is Confidential Information and is subject to the terms outlined in your Registered iPhone Developer Terms and Conditions with Apple.
Again, there were 8 betas released for 2.0 between March and July. If Apple keeps this up, could we be looking at a September release for 2.1?
