Hi Heather,

Congrats to you, Kevin, and the LiveCode team. Version 8 looks great.

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:

I think I may have answered my own (premature) question. This is from the release notes for 8.0.0: ... -8_0_0.pdf

Currently, the supported versions of Xcode are:
Xcode 4.6 on MacOS X 10.7
Xcode 5.1 on MacOS X 10.8
Xcode 6.2 on MacOS X 10.9
Xcode 6.2 and 7.2 on Mac OS X 10.10
Xcode 7.3 on MacOS X 10.11

Re: LiveCode 8 Installing

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.
