Apple’s development tools for OS X and iOS are  joining the OS X Lion launch party today with the release of  Xcode 4.1.  The new version of Xcode is now available as a free download in the Mac App Store or through the regular Apple developer website. It’s interesting to note that Xcode has always been included free of charge with all Macs and as a free download until recently when it appeared in the Mac App Store with a price tag of $ 4.99 for non-developers. It isn’t clear why Apple is making it free again, but I don’t plan one asking them why. After all you shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth. So go get your free copy of Xcode 4.1 which supports OS X 10.7 Lion and iOS 4.3 now via the Mac App Store or at Apple’s developer website. What are you waiting for?  It is time to start working on the next great OS X Lion or iOS app now!
