Xcode 7

Generics in Objective-C

Xcode 7 introduced generics in Objective-C. This mechanism is especially important when you bridge in mixed Objective-C and Swift code. AppCode can parse and highlight generic parameters and lets you rename them easily.

Nullability annotations

New nullability annotations in Objective-C, _Nonnull and _Nullable, are now supported in AppCode editor.

Swift 2

Swift 2 support

Benefit from Swift 2 support in AppCode that includes parsing, completion and highlighting for error handling statements, cleanup actions and other features recently added in Swift language. Swift code formatting options also support modern Swift constructions which you can easily adjust in preferences.
