Apple releases Xcode 5.0.2 GM build to developers


Apple posted a new build of Xcode to its developer portal this evening. The new version is listed as the Golden Master build of 5.0.2, which is interesting considering the fact that there were no betas of this update.

After installation of Xcode, the iOS 7.0.3 simulator hangs on first launch for a period of time (eventually launching). This issue has been resolved. (15368009)

LLDB now correctly displays structs in simulator processes. (14496092)
