AppCode 2017.3.3: fix for SSH access to GitHub


AppCode 2017.3.3 is available for download on our site. The patch update is also available if you are using AppCode 2017.3.2.

This update addresses connectivity issues when using built-in SSH executable for accessing GitHub. This happened due to the change introduced by GitHub recently – support for weak cryptographic keys was dropped.

We plan to backport this fix to some earlier AppCode versions (AppCode 2018.1 EAP build 181.3870.4 already includes it). In the meantime, as a workaround, you can switch to using Native support (Preferences | Version Control | Git | SSH Executable | Native). Please note that when using this option, if your SSH keys are protected with a passphrase, they need to be added at system level. This is usually done by using a tool such as ssh-agent.

Besides, the following important issues are fixed:

  • Enabling CocoaPods in a project breaks build (OC-16466)
  • Problem with debugger termination when expanding certain Swift variable (OC-16726)
  • Xcode schemes are not reloaded when switching between projects or from project to a workspace (OC-16622)
