Downloading Xcode from the App Store, or even the .xip file while using a browser, regardless of which one it is, can be a pain when your connection is not as stable and fast as others' and when the download can be interrupted at any time and you're most likely going to have to restart the whole download.
My Mac somehow decided to upgrade my Xcode to 11 while I am running OSX 10.14.1. I needed to download Xcode 10, except the developer.apple.com/Developer_Tools is keep dying on me. How does it upgrade from 10 to 11 but I can't download 10 back is beyond me.
Note the pre-installed JDK version (OracleJDK) for each image in the table below.While Mac jobs can test against multiple JDK versions using the jdk key,macOS images up to xcode9.3 can only switch up to Java 8, and images xcode9.4 and later can switch to Java 10 (if pre-installed) and later.In practical terms, if your Mac build requires Java 8 and below, use xcode9.3 (or below); if your build requires Java 10and later, use xcode9.4 (or later).
I signed up for the (free) Apple Developer ID and downloaded the latest Xcode release from here. Is it any different from the App Store download/installation? If it's the same, why does the App Store keep asking me about billing information (credit card and other details) every time I try to use the App Store to install Xcode?
Small note: The App Store info page puts the Xcode 4.4.1 app size at 1.46GB while the Apple Developer site puts the Xcode 4.4.1 dmg file at 1.81GB. The difference in size caught my attention and I wonder if they are two different things (new to the Mac). Plus I would rather use some sort of download accelerator (DTA on my Firefox will do just fine) in order to download this monstrous thing!
I suppose this must come bundled with Xcode from the website. It wouldn't surprise me if it were, as this framework seems to be needed before Xcode can start. I suppose Apple distributes its MAS Xcode with users with stable internet connections and single-install in mind, while the website version for users who might want to deploy it to several machines, in which case it would be a drag to have to download any extra-crucial elements that don't come with the installer package.
My suggestion: If you plan on using a download assistant/accelerator and have trouble with your billing for the MAS I suggest you download from the website. I doubt there is any difference at all regarding the app itself.
PS: If you do, maybe come back and comment if you had to download any additional components or if it was a full installation straight out of the disk image, as to increase the knowledge of the community for any further reference.
I remember the dev tools used to be an optional install on the applications DVD for the earlier Mac OS X versions, but I don't remember if the download from the dev portal was ever an installer package. Now it's just the app bundle in a signed xip archive, unxip and drag and drop.
What's an OS without software? Websites like macintoshgarden.org and archive.org have old software to download. There's plenty more and you can find them with search engines. In my video I downlaoded Sim Ant and Unreal but the software doesn't need to be a game. Download a disk image and then you'll need to attach the downloaded disk image to the command string when booting:
GCC 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 (auto-vectorizing gcc with OpenMP):Compiled using source code from the GNU servers. This contains current versions (8.3 is the stable release) of gfortran (free, open source, GNU Fortran 95 compiler), gcc (GNU C) and g++ (GNU C++) compilers that can perform auto-vectorization (i.e. modify code to take advantage of AltiVec/SSE, automatically) and other sophisticated optimizations like OpenMP. For more information, see this webpage. Download my binaries, and cd to the download folder. Then gunzip gcc-12.1-m1-bin.tar.gz (if your browser didn't do so already) and then sudo tar -xvf gcc-12.1-m1-bin.tar -C /. It installs everything in /usr/local. You can invoke the Fortran 95 compiler by simply typing gfortran. You will also need to have Apple's XCode Tools installed from the Mac App Store. With XCode 4 or better you will need to download the command-line tools as an additional step. You will find the option to download the command-line tools in XCode's Preferences. On 10.9 Mavericks or higher, you can get the command-line tools by simply typing xcode-select --install. And on Catalina, you may have to specify an additional include and library path -I/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/SDKs/MacOSX.sdk/usr/include -L/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/SDKs/MacOSX.sdk/usr/lib for the compiler to find the system headers and libraries.

g77 3.4 :This is the FINAL release of g77 (version 3.4 compiler). Future versions of GCC will have gfortran (see above). Download my binaries, and cd to the download folder. Then gunzip g77-bin.tar.gz (if your browser didn't do so already) and sudo tar -xvf g77-bin.tar -C /. It installs everything in /usr/local. You will need to have Apple's Developer Tools installed. They are included on the retail DVD version of OS X and also available as a free download from Apple's Developer Site. Please install the most current version of Developer Tools. Thanks to James Wookey for the Intel Mac version of g77. Binaries: g77-bin.tar.gz (PowerPC only), g77-intel-bin.tar.gz (Intel Mac only), updated October 2006. Documentation: click here!
Xcode is Apple's integrated development environment (IDE) for macOS, used to develop software for macOS, iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS. It was initially released in late 2003; the latest stable release is version 14.2, released on December 13, 2022, via the Mac App Store with macOS Monterey. The software suite is offered free of charge. Registered developers can download preview releases and prior versions of the suite through the Apple Developer website. Xcode includes command-line tools which enable UNIX-style development via the Terminal app in macOS. They can also be downloaded and installed without the GUI.
On October 12, 2011, Xcode 4.2 was released concurrently with the release of iOS 5.0, and it included many more and improved features, such as storyboarding and automatic reference counting (ARC). Xcode 4.2 is the last version to support Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard", but is available only to registered developers with paid accounts; without a paid account, 3.2.6 is the latest download that appears for Snow Leopard.
On June 2, 2014, at the Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple announced version 6 of Xcode. One of the most notable features was support for Swift, an all-new programming language developed by Apple. Xcode 6 also included features like Playgrounds and live debugging tools. On September 17, 2014, at the same time, iOS 8 and Xcode 6 were released. Xcode could be downloaded on the Mac App Store.
Here, under "Account", I can log in if I already have an account or if I don't, I can create a free Apple account to be able to download the certificate or the signing profile with Apple and to be able to use it with a real device.
Also, you can "Download Simulators" or "Add Additional Simulators", and you will be able to click on the one you don't have - for example, "iOS 14.3 Simulator" - enter your password, and then the download will start.
I would like to know where the Mac App Store downloads the files under Lion? I need the DMG file in order to repair something in my system, but how can I access that file? Any help will be appreciated.
To answer your query, you will definitely be able to locate the DMG files and other development tools on This will require you to sign in using your Apple ID. In order to have a valid session, after logging on, you will then be able to download the links given below for subsequent versions starting from the earliest version right upto the 13 XCode version.
To test the Notarization, upload the dmg to dropbox and then download it again. Then double-click toinstall and drag across to /Applications. When you launch Audacity, you now get a warning about having downloaded from the internet, rather than being prevented from running...
You can download the installer for the aeneas audio-text synchronization tools here. Choose the download according to your operating system (Windows or Mac). For Linux, the aeneas install is part of the Reading App Builder package and you do not need to install it separately. 2b1af7f3a8
