Apple has recently released a new version of its code editor and IDE: Xcode 7.3 Beta.

The new version accompanies by a few additions and upgrades, for example, better code finish and support for Swift toolchains. Since Apple recently offered an open-source version of its Swift programming language, it was just characteristic that Xcode’s forthcoming variants will offer more space to play with for Swift coders, and Xcode 7.3 Beta does not disillusion.

Code finish will now happen in fewer keystrokes, or if nothing else that is the way Apple has designed it. It will likewise give better proposals in view of what you’re dealing with:

“Code fulfillment gives better matches less keystrokes and makes it easier to find what you’re searching for. You can sort only the capitalized letters of a method name. Typing “myDelegate.tveh”, where myDelegate is a UITableViewDelegate, gives tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, estimatedHeightForRowAtIndexPath indexPath: NSIndexPath) -> CGFloat as the first completion. You’ll also get completions that better match your intent, so typing “myView.color”, where myView is a UIView, gives every property containing the “color” substring, like “tintColor” and “backgroundColor”. (22429862)”

On the off chance that you’ve downloaded a Swift toolchain from, Xcode will now support it. It will likewise index, build and debug based on that toolchain’s tools rather than Xcode’s default tools.

Unfortunately, Xcode features like playground and code migration won’t work with alternative toolchains. If you’re interested in giving the beta Xcode a shot, it can be downloaded via Apple’s developer portal. (Source by Thenextweb).
