    Hi guys,

    I started learning programming using Xcode 3, because the book I was learning from used that. I decided however, that it would probably be beneficial to move over to Xcode 4. However, in Xcode 4, when it comes to releasing objects it doesn't let you use:
    -(void)dealloc {
    [<variable> release];
    [super dealloc];
    It comes up with the errors

    'ARC forbids explicit message send of 'release'
    'ARC forbids explicit message send of 'dealloc'

    I'm now not sure how to realise objects.

    Any help/advice would be great!

    Looks like you're using the Xcode 4.2 beta.

    At least parts of it are currently under the NDA I guess, so I suggest you have a look at the Apple documentation and some of the WWDC 2011 'Developer Tools' track videos to find out more about ARC, and why it's preventing you from releasing objects.
