Automatic Reference Counting ? Follow
I'm rather wondering if/when Automatic Reference Counting will be supported in AppCode ?
And will that come automatically via the external compiler toolchain, or will it require direct implementation within AppCode itself?
Obviously it's going to affect inspections and code analysis in either case.
Perhaps less than 48 hours after seeing it mentioned in the keynote is too short to answer this, but it's long enough for the question to arise.

We only build calling external xcodebuild process over Xcode project so whatever change is we're safe. Memory leak inspections indeed seem obsolete since they obviously insisting to add retain/release calls that compiler now does itself.
Remember ARC is not mandatory, and given its limitations some tricky code might note have the option to use it at all. It's a good idea to let the inspections stick around, and maybe detect when ARC is being used.
