Xcode 11 Beta 2 image released

We have released an Xcode 11 Beta image today. You can select the image by adding the following to a job in config.yml :

  xcode: 11.0.0

These are the changes in this image compared to Xcode 10.2:

  • Xcode is now version 11.0 Beta 2 Build 11M337n
  • Since this is a beta image, we have a reduced set of simulators, all running iOS 13. We will add more simulators to the final image.
  • The system Ruby is unchanged at 2.3.7p456. We have the latest stable version of (2.5.5 and 2.6.3) available to use via chruby.

The full manifest of the installed software and SDKs is available here.

Known issues

  • The issue with Java JDK in the 10.2.1 reported here image remains, we will fix this in the next Xcode 11 beta image.
  • There is an issue where a dialog appears for the first 30 seconds after the image boots reporting that the OS did not shut down cleanly on the last boot. This might impact UI tests. We pre-boot VMs so that builds can start as quickly as possible, so in many cases our VMs have been booted more than 30 seconds prior before to build running, which will reduce the rate of occurance of this bug.

Upcoming deprecations / changes

Are there plans for Xcode 11 beta 3? I think Apple required submitting testflight app using the latest Xcode beta, so our current fastlane setup will fail on current config.

Hi James, I’ve just swapped over, so now putting “11.0.0” in your config will build with Xcode beta 3.
