New to Xcode 7.3 beta, you can select Preferences > Components > Toolchains without having to launch Xcode from the command line.
Things that you probably figured out on your own:
- You can’t use beta toolchains for App Store compilations
- The Playground is limited to the default toolchain. (And they’re still a bit laggy for massive playgrounds.)
Things you might not have thought of but are worth knowing:
- The code migrator doesn’t work with beta toolchains. It’s strictly limited to the default toolchain.
This is awesome. I’m looking forward to develop jailbreak tweaks on Xcode’s IDE in the far future when the jailbreak dev toolchain can be used inside Xcode through this feature.
There’s also a new “two-link chain” icon (at first, I thought it was a paper clip) near the centre of the toolbar that provides quick access to the toolchains preference dialog.
So, does this mean I can safely use the beta and not install multiple versions of XCode?
