AppCode Starts 2021.3 EAP: Swift Error Breakpoints, Plist Editor, Swift Actors, and More!

Hi everyone,

Today we are starting the Early Access Program for AppCode 2021.3, and the first build is already available for download.


Language support

Starting with this build, AppCode supports actors in Swift (SE-0306):

Swift Package project template

In addition to opening Swift packages in AppCode, you can now also create them using the project wizard:

Swift error breakpoints

We’ve added an option for setting Swift error breakpoints in your code in the Exception Breakpoints preferences:


Plist editor

AppCode now has a full-featured property list editor. You can use it to perform all the basic actions you need, like adding a key or modifying its value, switching from the table representation of .plist file to pure text editing, and more:

New debugger UI

Thanks to the IntelliJ Platform team, the debugger tool window UI has become simpler and more minimalist. All of the popular debugger actions are now placed on the single horizontal toolbar:

Debugger UI

You can configure its layout in Preferences | Appearance & Behavior | Menus and Toolbars | Debug Header Toolbar. In addition, Evaluate Expression is now more discoverable. Instead of opening a dialog, you can simply enter the expression right in the Debug tool window.

That’s it! As usual, we also have a heap of bug fixes – learn about them in the full release notes.
