    Is anybody else having significant new problems with Xcode 4.6.2 (the latest version which was released in the last few days.)

    I am getting hangs that require a force quit of Xcode, more crashes, problems with breakpoints breaking on the wrong lines, odd errors about prefix files being built on the wrong branch, and a whole host of other problems.

    Xcode 4.0 was a mess when it was first released, and for the most part it has been getting slowly more stable with each new release. This release seems to be a step backwards however.

    What are other people's experiences?

    I haven't used it extensively, but one thing I did notice is that the Analyze tool is much slower for me.
    Seems to be taking forever to complete.

    Did you try an option-clean and a reboot? (To clear out all the Zombie processes Xcode leaves around).

    I always clean my entire project before Analzying it. And XCode is usually the first program I run after turning on my computer. It's not a lack of memory or resources, it's just slow, like Apple added a ton of additional stuff to check.
