Xcode 3 Change: No ZeroLink

Apple removed ZeroLink in Xcode 3, which makes my ZeroLink post obsolete for those of you using Xcode 3. Apple says it improved the speed of the linker in Xcode 3 so ZeroLink is no longer needed. 

For the vast majority of developers, getting rid of ZeroLink is a good thing. When you use Xcode 3 to build your project, you will know if you have any link errors. No more Build Succeeded messages followed by crashes and cryptic error messages when your application runs. Another bonus is that you will be able to run the debug versions of your programs outside of Xcode and run them on other people's Macs.
