Change of requirements to build swift?


(Guillaume Lessard) #1

Hello,

Is master supposed to have dropped support for building on 10.11.x?
The previous snapshot I’d built was January 24th, and it was still fine.

Thanks,
Guillaume Lessard

I think it should still build with 10.11, however you need Xcode 8.3 beta 1 now.

Hi, Guillaume. The master branch always builds with the latest publicly released Xcode beta; building with older Xcodes is not officially supported. However, the primary dependency here is building the overlays (in stdlib/public/SDK), which are closely coupled with the Apple SDKs; if you’re seeing issues, it may be possible to either disable or fix the problematic overlays.

The host OS should not affect the build except that (a) very old OSs may not be able to run all the tests, and (b) newer Xcodes drop support for older OSs.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Jordan

Hi Guillaume,

You will need Xcode 8.3 beta 1to build swift, and Xcode requires macOS 10.12.

Xcode 8.3 beta requires a Mac running macOS 10.12 beta 3 or later.

Thanks,

That’s probably it. I hadn’t thought of the Xcode beta!

Thanks,
