The Xcode 13.3 RC image has just been released and can be selected as follows:

    xcode: 13.3.0

:apple: macOS Monterey :apple:

This image is our first stable image based on macOS Monterey (macOS 12). We would value any feedback / bug reports for issues, or regressions, you may find in this image.

This image is based on macOS 12.2.1 for both VM and Metal resource classes

We are now including Ruby 3.1 with our macOS images.

Update 14 March 2022:

Apple has now released 13.3 as “stable”. The build number has not changed from the 13.3 RC release, therefore our image does not require an update.

Happy building! :tada:

I’m noticing the step to checkout dependencies on my project taking way more than used to if compared to the previous Xcode image (12.2.1)… I’m wondering if the network is properly setup in the image. It’s taking so long that I’m reaching the timeout limit.

Too long with no output (exceeded 10m0s): context deadline exceeded

I also tried SSH the job and it’s also incredibly slow.

This will likely be an infra issue rather than an image issue, the interface settings are constant across the images so networking problems generally occur from the host level upwards. I’ve asked our Mac infra team to check this out to see if there is anything that can be done

We still having the same issue. Our project cannot even download all the dependencies when we run the Swift Package Manager (SPM).

Is anyone aware of performance issues using Xcode 13 within gen2 resource environments?

We’ve seen about a 40% increase in build times since the Nov/December timeframe (this has been gradual) with no local build time impacts. This seems to be only tied to our VMs.

That is a little unexpected. We have had some issues with capacity lately which we’re doing our best to resolve however we understand the side-effects to just be increased queuing time. Would you mind sharing a link to a slow build to me via DM and I’ll have a look into it?

@bytesguy Any ETA for xcode: 13.3.1 ?

@m1entus Should be today, it’s currently rolling out to the fleet. Apple was extremely slow getting the direct download version of Xcode out this time so that delayed us somewhat.
