Xcode update a bug-fix release, iMovie adds features

A week after developers received the "golden master" for Xcode 5.1.1 (free), the minor update has been released to users by Apple. The 2.18GB program, which allows developers to author programs for OS X Mountain Lion and Mavericks (10.8 and 10.9) as well as iOS 7.1, has received a handful of bug fixes, and improves the reliability of Quick Look within the debugger. In addition, Apple has updated iMovie for Mac to v10.0.3, which adds new sorting, title and font options.

Xcode 5.1.1 builds on the features included in Xcode 5.1, which include a LLVM compiler, a new Instruments panel, and improvements in the IDE and iOS simulator. Version 5.1.1 fixes an issue that would reposition the Interface Builder canvas unexpectedly, resolves a problem where test cases would report as failed when in fact they had passed, and squashes a rare code generation bug in the LLVM compiler. The usual additional bug fixes and stability tweaks are also noted.

The company's consumer video editor, iMovie, was also updated on Thursday to version 10.0.3, the first update since January. Users can now sort events in the sidebar by date, crop and rotate clips in events, add speed effects through the Adjustments Bar and smooth transitions in and out of those effects. The titles feature in iMovie 10 has also been updated to allow users the ability to change the font, size and color of titles, and transitions can now be double-clicked to adjust their duration.

The update also fixes some specific bugs, such as issues that could cause iMovie to quit unexpectedly and issue that could cause sharing to fail. The new version also improves reliability of search when using partial or multiple search terms, and makes general usability improvements to computers set for certain languages. The update can be downloaded through Software Update for existing users.

Xcode is available free, while iMovie 10 is available for free with the purchase of a new Mac (or for customers who had a previous version installed and have upgraded to Mavericks). For new purchasers, it costs $15 and, like Xcode, is exclusively available from the Mac App Store.
