Xcode 2.5 is a minor update to the Tiger tools that is functionally similar to Xcode 2.4.1. It is not considered a critical update. Xcode 2.5 for the first time supports development hosted on Tiger as well as Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). This release is recommended for developers needing to continue to use the Tiger tools while running Leopard, and serves as a transition to Xcode 3.0. On Tiger systems Xcode 2.5 will upgrade previous versions of Xcode; on Leopard systems Xcode 2.5 will install along side Xcode 3.0. Xcode 2.5 does not support developing for the Leopard SDK or Leopard-specific features. Please read the release notes for installation details.
There are three improvements in this version of Xcode
Its Installer allows you to install on either a Tiger or Leopard system
When installing on Leopard, you may install in a location other than the /Xcode2.5 directory on the startup volume
When installed on Leopard, you may move the /Xcode2.5 folder in its entirety to any other location and use Xcode normally
