Xcode is the toolset for building Mac and iOS apps—and with Xcode 5, the tools do more than ever to help you create fast, efficient, high-quality apps. Join Bill Weinman on a tour of Xcode's new features and what they mean for your OS X and iOS development workflow. Learn how Xcode automatically configures your apps to use the latest Apple services, manages your image files in a unified asset catalog, and helps you design an app that looks gorgeous on iOS 7 or OS X Mavericks, with controls for managing layouts on different screen sizes. Plus, Bill demonstrates the new search capabilities, source control with branching and merging, and powerful new support for LLVM modules.

Topics include:
  • Storing icons and images with asset catalogs
  • Managing developer accounts, certificates, and profiles with automatic configuration

Welcome

Hi, I am Bill Weinman and welcome to Xcode 5 New Features. In this course, I will show you some of the new features of Xcode 5. We'll start with the updates to user interface including the improved find quickly And the new search navigator for more flexible and powerful search capabilities. I'll explain the new asset catalogs feature, and how it can help you better organize your images and icons in the various sizes and resolutions you'll need to support.

Automatic configuration allows you to manage your Apple developer accounts, certificates, and profiles quickly and easily. I'll show you new interface builder features for creating and managing layouts on screens of different sizes and dimensions. Source code control is improved in X-Code 5, and I'll show you how to use its new branching and merging capabilities. And one of the biggest improvements is almost entirely invisible, support for LLVM modules can both simplify your projects and significantly improve compile times.

So let's get started with Xcode 5 New Features.
