Where can I get Xcode 3.0?

    I have two Macs - one at home which I'll do my primary iPhone dev work on and one at work which sits in a corner of the office which I guess I can tinker on at lunch times and such as I hone my Cocoa programming skills :)

    The Mac mini at home runs Xcode 3.1 with the latest iPhone SDK - so no problems there.

    The Mac at work is an old Cube which runs 10.4.8. I can't install Xcode onto it as the latest download available from developer.apple.com (Xcode 3.1) needs Mac OS 10.5.

    Question: Where can I download an older version of Xcode from (maybe 3.0) that will run on Mac OS 10.4.8? I don't need to run the iPhone SDK on it - I just want an environment where I can write and play with code.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers!

    Xcode 3+ is Leopard only.

    Xcode 2+ is on the Tiger Install DVD.

    Download Xcode 2.5. It is available on the Apple Dev site. Don't use the one on the Tiger DVD as it is probably out of date.

    Do you have a link for Xcode 2.5 on the Apple dev site? When I log in and go to the Xcode section, I only have the option to download 3.1...

    Sorry to be a pain!

    http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/

    Click the login button at the top right. Login. Click the Downloads link. Click Developer Tools on the right. Scroll down until you see Xcode 2.5.

    I didn't see a link, and Xcode 3 was exactly what I needed and this forum came up when I googled it.

    Thank you for posting the link: 39 months late, and in the wrong place. It was exactly what I was looking for!

    Another Thank-you

    I concur with JesseW6889 - thank you to fluxwizard. I also, was having trouble finding a URL to get Xcode 3.6.2 from -- and this thread came up early in my searches. Ancient threads are still ranked high in Google.

    And I concur with the two above - many thanks to fluxwizard. The Apple site no longer explicitly list downloads for old versions of Xcode. If anyone stumbling across this post has links to any other downloads of old versions of Xcode, I would be most grateful.

    Good point regarding the fact that this thread is highly ranked when searching for Xcode 3. I have withdrawn my criticism.

    It is tough to find on the site, but here's how:

    1. go to http://developer.apple.com
    2. Click "Resources" at the top of the page
    3. Under OSX click "Downloads"
    4. Uncheck all options but Developer Tools and type "XCode" into the search bar. You will find all versions under this search.

    It never ceases to amaze me how forums can help me out with what I need. I just ask the question, and some benevolent soul pops up with the answer, like as if they were just hanging around waiting for me to ask.

    Many, many thanks to Kathters. I never would have found my way to those downloads.

    Ain't the internet, and the people on it (well some of them) great!

    Thanks again.
