Static Analysis in XCode.

A friend told me about static analysis in Xcode today, and that its a feature that is not enabled by default. The “Build and Analyze” menu option will fire off the extra inspection, but here is how to add an extra build target:

This extra level of debugging will keep an eye out for wasted memory allocation and initialisation errors.

XCode 4.0

Wow. Looks like apple are finally integrating all their separate components into one IDE. I think I also see two split panes in the editor. I wonder if iphone dev accounts will get early access to it.
