Apple Working on New Language to Surpass Objective-C?

Jul.08, 2010

Jesper from waffle software believes that Apple is planning a new programming language to surpass Objective-C.

After watching the eminently early and freely available WWDC 2010 session videos, I think my scales have finally tipped. It is my belief that Apple is definitely working on a new language to surpass Objective-C as their intended, primary, publicly recommended programming language, which I will call “xlang”.

He argues that this would provide Apple with a modern language with a modern environment, low-level enough to perform at the speed of Objective-C and C and thin enough to support modern amenities responsibly. Apple would be able to define their own syntax and semantics, steering the vocabulary of the language heavily towards models they’d like to use.

Secret ‘Marble’ Project is Actually Xcode 4

A secret UI design project at Apple has been outed as a new version of Xcode, according to Daring Fireball’s John Gruber.

A few times since January 2009, I’ve mentioned “Marble”, a secret UI design project at Apple which I believed was a new system-wide theme for Mac OS X. E.g.: my MWSF 2009 predictions, and my WWDC 2009 predictions. Ends up I was wrong about what “Marble” is — and in fact, it was announced at WWDC 2010 this month. It’s Xcode 4.

Xcode 4 is still in beta and Apple hasn’t posted any screenshots; however, developers can get a sneak peak by watching the WWDC 2010 “Developers Tools State of the Union” session.

Gruber also reveals that OS 3.2 for the iPad was not developed by a secret separate team. The real reason iOS 4.0 doesn’t support the iPad is due to timing issues. He believes that iOS 4.1 will bring OS unification across all devices.
