Quick question: which version of Xcode works with LiveCode 8.0.0?

Xcode 7.3? Or 7.3.1?

For those unfamiliar, legacy versions of Xcode are available for download here:

When installing LiveCode 8 on Mac El Capitan version 10.11.4, it displays an error dialog. When opening the dictionary it is empty.
Kindly see attached screenshots.

Any pointers on this would be appreciated.
