Can I just say fuck this latest XCode

2023-09-24 18:10:02.151197+02 by Dan Lyke 6 comments

Can I just say fuck this latest XCode release? Every single project I work on is breaking in some weird-ass way because of it. Currently trying to figure out why qmake has decided to hork up a hairball on building SquareDesk.

I currently have a 2018 MacBook Pro with a battery replacement as my personal laptop, and I'm using Logic Pro occasionally, and though that's absolutely a nadir of Apple hardware, but doesn't run Linux really well because touchbar, I've been having a lot of trouble justifying a Linux laptop.

But 100% yes. I miss Claws mail. I miss real package management. I miss builds that just work.
