Apple updates Xcode 2.3

Apple today released Xcode 2.3, an update to its development environment for both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs. Version 2.3, which includes Apple's GCC 4 based on version 4.0.1 of the Free Software Foundation's GNU Compiler Collection.,adds support for DWARF Debugging Format, improved support for Nasm (Netwide Assembler) for Intel directly as a separate compiler, improvements to sharing precompiled headers, better linking support, "Clean" improvements, improved support for processing Info.plist files, and Dedicated Network Builds targeted at developers of large projects with dedicated build farms for compilation. The debugger also features better tracking of breakpoints across projects, support for template breakpoints, and new DWARF debugging format and .dSYM files. Specfic changes are noted on Apple's website. Update: Apple also said the release fixes a security issue where remote attackers may be able to obtain or modify WebObjects projects while Xcode is running.

"The WebObjects Xcode plug-in provides the ability to manipulate projects through a network service," according to Apple documentation. "This service is accessible to remote systems while Xcode is running. This update addresses the issue by limiting this service to the local system. This issue does not affect default installations of Xcode Tools. Only systems with the WebObjects plug-in installed are affected."
