Deprecation of SenTestingKit and OCUnit!

SenTestingKit and OCUnit are deprecated and will be removed from a future release of Xcode. Source code using OCUnit will generate warnings while being compiled. Developers need to migrate to XCTest, by using the “Edit > Refactor > Convert to XCTest…” menu command. Developers need to replace all their SenTestingKit and OCUnit code with XCTest.!


Deprecation of ATS.framework!

ATS.framework is being deprecated. Source code using ATS APIs will generate warnings while being compiled. For 10.8, there will be no loss of functionality but there could be areas where performance will suffer.!

Developers need to replace all their ATS code (including ATSUI) with CoreText. ATS functionality will be removed in future OS X releases:!
