This new version of the iPhone SDK is an update and features several bugfixes. New optional GCC and LLVM compilers have been included, an updated project assistant, a simplified taskbar and security improvements.

According to the developers, the news is the same as in the previous version:

  • Support for targeting platforms other than Mac OS X, including the iPhone OS SDK.
  • Optional GCC 4.2 & LLVM GCC 4.2 compilers for use in the Mac OS X 10.5 SDK.
  • Wizards for creating new projects, targets and updated source files.
  • The toolbar uses a single menu for choosing platform, target and debug/ release.
  • Integrated SCM support now works with Subversion 1.5.

The new SDK requires Mac OS X 10.5.5 or higher and is available for download free of charge to registered developers.
