New AppCode 2019.1 EAP: application language and region settings, performance improvements and more!

Hi everyone,

New AppCode 2019.1 EAP build is available on our site.

Application language and region

Change the application language and region on the Options pane in Edit configurations… dialog:

Resolve contexts

We’ve implemented the performance optimization for initial symbol caching: by default AppCode will cache only simulator symbols for the most modern architecture supported by currently selected target. To load another resolve context, select it from the drop-down in the IDE status bar and choose the preferred combination:

Bug fixes

The following notable issues are fixed in this build:

  • Module not found error when using modern style @import (OC-11917)
  • Swift: navigation from super.init is incorrect (OC-18296)

    Seems performance optimization for initial symbol caching is working, gonna test it more thoroughly.
    But the process “Generating Xcode files…” still takes a lot of time (it is noticeable longer than symbol caching). When I adding new file to a project then the “symbol caching” updates and can last about 10-20 seconds during which autocompletion doesn’t work (almost ok for me), but “Generating Xcode files…” lasts a lot longer. Is it ok ?

    Thanks a lot!

    Can’t wait for refactoring issues to be fixed, because refactoring is one of the core features I use ALL THE TIME and 2019.1 EAP just miserably fails at it…

  3. Mikhail Demidov says:

    Tried this EAP build for couple hours and it is unusable because autocompletion (for example for instance properties) A LOT slower than AppCode 2018.3, it takes always 5-10 seconds to show up, it is impossible to work with such delay. I’ve switched back to AppCode 2018.3.

      TBH autocompletion even in 2018.3 is a lot slower than Xcode. On local file symbols it is fast, but otherwise slow enough to be barely usable. I hope things will improve in 2019.1 !

    • Antoni says:

      Yah, autocompletion is so slow recently that I only use it when I’m not sure what to write, otherwise it’s faster to type instead :(

    • Alex says:

      Did I ever think I’d have to wait 3s for autocompletion in 2019? Both 2018.3 and 2019 EAPs

    • Florent Pillet says:

      Actually it seems that just typing has become unbearably slow in 2019.1. Please fix the performance issues! This is the #1 problem in AppCode right now and making me want to go back to Xcode…

      Just opened OC-18429 about this. Hope this helps!
