AppCode 2016.2 roadmap & thanks to our EAP users

Hi everyone,

Two weeks ago we published AppCode 2016.1 and now it’s time to reveal our plans for the next release.

Special thanks

We’d like to thank everyone who evaluated AppCode during the Early Access Program and shared their feedback and suggestions in our Twitter, blog and support channel, and especially to those who submitted issues or feature requests to our tracker. Several evaluators deserve special gifts for their contributions: free 1-year subscriptions. So here they are:

  • Mark Anders (YouTrack: markand)
  • Ian Bytchek (YouTrack: ianbytchek)
  • Benjamin Winterberg (YouTrack: Benjamin.Winterberg)
  • Jon Akhtar (YouTrack: sylvanaar)

A personal message will be sent to each one with the details on how to obtain the license. (If you see your name above and you don’t get an email from us within a week, ping us here in the comments.)


The main directions of development will remain the same as for AppCode 2016.1, with a few additions:

  • Swift
    • Syntax inspections (OC-13024)
    • Swift 2.2 support in parser (OC-13365 and subtasks)
    • New refactorings for Swift (Inline variable (OC-11356) and Introduce variable (OC-11591) first)
    • Related editor performance issues
  • Mixed Objective-C and Swift code:
    • Resolve issues
    • Improvements for Rename refactoring and Find Usages
  • Objective-C: fixes for generics

The current plan is to deliver Swift 2.2 and part of the mixed code improvements in updates for 2016.1. All other improvements are scheduled for 2016.2 EAP, which we plan to open around mid-May.

Stay tuned and don’t to miss the next EAP launch!
