Is build speed likely to continue to lag Xcode 4 on release?

Building and running either an  app or unit test suite (iOS, in the simulator) takes about twice as long in AppCode as it does in XCode 4 (for me, with the project I'm currently working on). Everything else in AppCode works pretty swiftly, but it makes a TDD-ish test/code cycle slower than would be ideal.

I realise that JetBrains is dependent here on xcodebuild, but is there any hope that the difference here will lessen? Or are there tweaks or settings that can be applied to speed things up? It does appear  to me that AppCode does more work than looks necessary when I rebuild without changes.

I suspect this might be related to this issue: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/OC-1540?projectKey=OC&query=build , so may well be improved in an upcoming build

Yes, we have made some improvements and the next eap should be at least not slower than Xcode.
Please let us know it fixes the issue for you or not.

Thanks,

Thanks. Looking forward to trying the new eap when it's out, and will let you know how it goes.

Beta 2 does a build+test much faster than beta 1. It's now about the same as XCode 4. Nice job, thanks!
