    Was I hearing things when I heard him say XCode 3.0 would be out later today? Where is it??

    I'm wondering the same thing. I just checked the Apple Developer site and it's not there yet.

    i've been checking the Developer Connection for hours now. although when i just checked again they changed the Xcode page download link to say "Download Xcode 2.4" even though there's nothing new to download.

    2.4 isn't on there. Only 2.3, even though the image shows 2.4. I want 3.0 where is it.

    3.0 should be Leopard-only. 2.4 is the Tiger release. Tiger is now deprecated for developers :p

    Seriously? That sucks. :( I could have sworn I heard that XCode 3 would be available immediately. Will we at least get DashCode before Leopard?

    According to the macrumors live feed 3.0 was supposed to be released today. I highly doubt it's 10.5 only (Can't see Apple doing anything like that). I bet they're just still working on getting it out, sometimes it takes them a little while. I guess I'll just keep checking every few minutes until I fall asleep. :p

    From the xcode-users list:

    From: Chris Espinosa <cde [at] apple.com>
    Subject: Xcode 2.4, 3.0, and Confidentiality

    Xcode 2.4, an update to the Xcode 2 IDE, is announced today and
    available on connect.apple.com (Access will vary by developer type and
    geography today as we push the content around the world). This is a
    public release and it can be discussed freely on xcode-users.

    Xcode 3.0 was announced today as the development environment for
    Leopard, for shipment with Leopard in Spring 2007. The existence of
    Xcode 3.0 is public and announced, but its features, content, and
    details are under nondisclosure to seeded ADC members.

    Here's Apple's page about the features in XCode 3.0. Looks quite cool.

    I've got DashCode :cool:

    As a matter of fact I've had it for months now... A simple search at your local torrent tracker should provide instant gratification. :D

    It means you only have to take the trash to the street, not all the way to the landfill? ;)
    And just how modern is that, anyway? I find it funny everybody claims u*nx is such a 'modern' OS when it's been around for so long....

    Does this mean Xcode is now going to automatically detect and delete your Boot Camp partition?

    Xray sounds cool, but I'll have to wait to see it in person. At least DashCode turned out to be a real product (with a real release date). I'm looking forward to that.

    What I'm wondering is if Xcode 3 will be included with the Leopard-preview as a Leopard-only application or if it will be cross-platform compatible with a stable Tiger installation (side-by-side). I'm just thinking along the lines of using Xcode 3 as a development environment and not just a playground for 10.5 exclusive features.

    Said it before the keynote, and Ill say it now, Apple needs to kiss ass with the developers, and from the looks of it I dont really know if XCode 3 as apple is pitching it now will help with that. Yes it adds a few new and nifty things, but there is still a huge gap in comparison to visual studio.net and all the other IDE's. Personally I have writen programs in C, Java and VB, and I found the gap so big that I gave up trying to learn writing anything for the Mac...

    On a side note.. I have a few good books on Xcode that im now selling! :p

    I'm pretty sure that applications developed with XCode 3.0 using Leopard-specific technologies (eg, Core Animation, garbage collection, etc) won't be 10.4 compatible.
