  • iPhone SDK beta 6 is out!


    Apple Wednesday afternoon released the sixth beta version of the iPhone SDK.

    According to the notes, beta 6 requires OS X 10.5.3, and will not function correctly on previous versions of OS X. The SDK is a whopping 1.19 GB download (which I'm currently pulling down at 200 kb/s ).

    From the readme:

    This sixth beta release of the iPhone SDK includes a complete set of tools, compilers, frameworks, and documentation for creating iPhone OS applications. These tools include the Xcode IDE, and the Instruments analysis tool, among many others. With this software you can develop applications that run on iPhone and iPod touch using the included iPhone Simulator.

      Normally there would be at least 2 RC's after beta so my guess is that the official version won't be out until July.

      I'm not downloading this. But I thought I'd let you know, I'm getting 58 kb/s over here. Yup that's right, come to England's countryside for a 512kbps connection. Who needs 100mbits or 30 mbits, when you got good ol' 512kbits. *cries*

      Now i will probably get reply like,uuummmm there is a forum for it so post the request there but for some reason dev team are not responding at all there.

      why should anyone be happy about a tool that can not get a simple function such as bluetooth to transfer file.

      THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I am sorry if i went bit off topic but rolving this issue is pain backside.

      If you knew the slightest bit about the legalities of radio devices and FCC as well as BT stack intergration(profiles), you wouldn't be so naive to assume a SDK is going to get a dev to "make you BT trasferz fylez".

      OBEX is not something you quickly code into an app and release it on a public forum.

      BTW, SDK is for iPhone compatible Apps...not the iPhone OS....and thats where the required stacks would have to be.

      First have to install the 10.5.3 update. From the Xcode 3.1 release notes:
      • Open Quickly no longer jumps directly to a file if there happens to be an insertion point in text that happens to be a valid project file name. This was removed to prevent accidental navigation when the intent was to open the Open Quickly panel. To jump directly to a file in whose name the insertion point is set, use Option-Open Quickly. You can set this to be the default behavior by changing the key binding of Option-Command-Shift-D to Open This Quickly, or use defaults write com.apple.Xcode XCOQSkipPanelBehaviour 2
      • The name of the Mac OS X SDK family has changed. If you have Conditional Build Settings of the form OTHER_LDFLAGS[sdk=macosx10*], you must change these to refer to macosx rather than macosx10.
      • A new build setting allows you to request OpenMP support.
