    I'm the sort of guy that likes to know how much pain I will endure before
    it comes.:eek: Like the spanish inquisition.. (haahaaa!!)

    So need to convert my project from Xcode 3.2.5 to the
    "latest and greatest" Xcode 4.3.2. So I can compile to my iPhone. os 5.1
    thanks apple.. (can't afford another phone for testing and don't really want to downgrade OS either)

    Going to install Lion or Mountain Lion Beta. (which one better?) on a partition.
    Since I don't want all my other software to break..

    1. But How painful will it be converting the IB to Storyboard
    (why I was avoiding 4.1)

    2. Will my code compile "out of the box" it's mostly pretty generic stuff,
    ListViews, Alerts, generic stuff..

    thanks.. any hints appreciated. (esp. about certificates and provisioning)

    ID -

    This is from mine own experience, you may be different.

    I'd stick with Lion, I'm not a trail blazer though:rolleyes:

    You shouldn't need to convert, you can still use xibs

    I've done a couple of projects and there were no issues.

    There is a video from last WWDC that give a great overview of the
    changes in xcode.

    I agree with cMacSW's responses with regards to using Lion and not likely having issues upgrading. The most annoying this for me was figuring out out how to make various project level settings and parameters changes. The XCode 3 way was, I thought, atrociously horrible, but I was used to where things were. XCode4 is better in that regard, but it took me a while to figure things out.
