Official WWDC thread

Now a video featuring an actual panther that some guy behind me here at the Apple Store describes as "corny as hell." Steve is now commenting on how "our competition" is saying they won't have Longhorn ready until 2006. Accompanied by an amusing video of a lazy-looking cow chewing his cud in a field with some rather pathetic, sad-sounding music. This is, for those who don't know, a reference to "Longhorn," the code name for the next major release of Windows, now expected to be released in 2005 or 2006.

iChat AV has a companion product ? a camera called iSight.

Holy crap, iSight at $149, it aint cheap! Add in $24 for iChat AV for Jaguar users and that's a pretty sum!

Xcode: a completely new set of developer tools, there ya go Timdorr, just for you! :p

ow the next big topic: Xcode. It's a completely new set of developer tools for Mac OS X. A single word was followed as their "bible": Speed. GCC 3.3, the latest and greatest. Using 101,391-line segment of Finder code as a demonstration. On a Dual 1 GHz G4, the build took 377 seconds in Xcode. In Code Warrior, it took 223. Code Warrior's faster, but the gap is narrowing.

Dual 1GHz G4, oh dear :s

Xcode. GCC 3.3. Fast compiles. can set up to do distributed builds over the net.

I guess, as long as they don't try and charge the UK ?150 I won't mind.

Edit, regards Xcode:

But here's a killer feature: Xcode uses distributed builds to use idle resources on your network, automatically. By adding one additional host, the aforementioned sample build time dropped to 208 seconds. By adding another three hosts, it went down to 96 seconds. "If you've got a team of developers, you should run out and buy one of these," Steve says, pointing to a slide of a rack filled with Xserves. Laughter and applause.

That's pretty cool!

Comparison. Jaguar: 29-some seconds to compile. in Panther 3 seconds.

Predictive compile. Compiles while you are editing! removes half the compiling time.

Zero link. Linking out of the equation.

Finally. Something has been done about those. 6 months with no updates: it's bene too long.
