New Developer Tool to X-ray Your Code for Flawless Programming

Insiders have recently hinted (we appreciate the heads up!) that there’s an intriguing addition on the Xcode and Dashcode on Apple’s Developer Tools page. A new, visually appealing application known as Xray has made its debut.

The description of the app draws inspiration from timeline editors like GarageBand, suggesting that Xray is designed for real-time testing and analysis of applications.

The visuals in the screenshot display metrics such as “Network Traffic,” “CPU Load,” and “Reads/Writes.” Additionally, Apple mentions that developers will have the capability to monitor user interactions and even the OpenGL video driver. This integration of advanced tracking tools and analytical features into a user-friendly graphical interface is likely to simplify the development process, leading to higher quality applications for users.

Exciting times ahead!
