Comment on "Garbage Collection and Objective-C"
by Jesper — May 06
I consider this very, very confirmed on Apple's part.

From "man gcc":

Enable garbage collection (GC) for Objective-C objects. The
resulting binary can only be used on Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and
later systems, due to additional functionality needed in the (NeXT)
Objective-C runtime.

Additional functionality needed in the Objective-C runtime and can only be used in 10.5. How is this not confirming it? If you do believe that this does not confirm it, could you explain how Apple could *not* deliver this functionality in 10.5 and still save its bacon?

When functionality is announced in documentation in earlier versions, consider them a done deal.
