Ok to update to xCode 9 ?

Post by sphere » Thu Sep 21, 2017 1:59 pm

Hi,

has anyone already experience with updating to Xcode 9?

Or should we wait on the next LC release?

Thanks!

Just a wild guess that we need more support and features for Android than iOs...

Dag mijnheer,

LC is usually one or two weeks BEHIND Xcode, so better wait for a new version that will support Xcode 9!


Groetjes

Hi all,

Do not update to xcode9 yet, since you will not be able to build iOS standalones :)

We have a pull request in progress:

https://github.com/livecode/livecode/pull/5943

Currently we are super busy preparing for the LCG conference and trying to release 9.0 DP-9 asap. After that, we will try to prioritize Xcode9 support.

Important note: You do NOT need to rebuild your apps with xcode 9 if you want them to run on iOS 11. This will happen seamlessly (remember that in the standalone settings, you choose e.g. "iOS 9.3 or later").

Best,
Panos

Guten Tag Klaus,

danke! Dann weiss ich bescheid :)


Thanks Panos!
Indeed, the test app i was running did still work after updating to iOs 11 on iPhone5s.

We will be patient of course, thanks.
