AppCode 2017.1 Roadmap

Hi everyone,

Today we are ready to share our future plans for the AppCode 2017.1.

Based on our users feedback, we’ve decided to dedicate this release to refining AppCode. The main focus will be parsing and resolution correctness for Objective-C, Swift and mixed code, together with performance optimizations and Xcode support tasks.

Please note this is a preliminary plan, so not all features listed below may be included in AppCode 2017.1.

We are going to work on the following areas:

  • Swift:
    • Swift 3 and upcoming Swift 3.x support tasks
    • Resolution improvements (subtasks in OC-13714)
    • Performance issues (OC-11727, memory optimization)
    • Override/implement improvements (such as OC-14562 and OC-14414)
  • Objective-C and mixed code:
    • __auto_type support (OC-14428)
    • Completion performance
    • Navigation performance (such as OC-14449 and OC-12810)
    • Resolve issues related to Swift 3 support
    • Refactoring issues (such as OC-12219)
  • Xcode 8.x support tasks (OC-13906, OC-14170)
  • Navigation improvements for projects with multiple targets (OC-9050 and related)

We are planning to open 2017.1 EAP at the end of January. If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to share them in the comments below.
