New AppCode 2017.3 EAP: better Swift support, faster incremental builds, Boost.Test support and more!

Hi everyone,

AppCode 2017.3 EAP (build 173.3188.6) is available for download on our site (if using previous 2017.3 EAP build, the patch update is also available).

Swift support

The following notable improvements are implemented for Swift:

  • SE-0111: Remove type system significance of function argument labels (OC-15241)
  • SE-0160: Limiting @objc inference (OC-15306). New inspection allows you to remove @objc attribute simply by pressing ⌥⏎:
    Remove @objc
    You can also run this inspection on the whole project by selecting Run inspection on… | Whole Project and remove all the redundant @objc attributes in your code by clicking the corresponding button in the Inspection Results toolwindow:
    Remove @objc in the whole project
  • A heap of fixes for resolving associated types
  • Regression with broken type inference for for ... in tuples when iterating over a dictionary (OC-16118)

Build performance

This build contains multiple fixes related to the performance problems discussed in this issue. Now incremental rebuilds should be significantly faster when there are only a few minor changes in the source code.

Boost.Test support

Kudoz to the CLion team, support for the Boost.Test framework is now available in AppCode for C++! Read more about it in this blog post.

Boost.Test support

Besides, this build brings support for API availability checking in Objective-C (OC-15636).

For the full list of fixes please see the release notes.
