Apple are now charging to download XCode! $4.99 or £2.99 for the UK. If this is for their accounting needs, why isn't this 0.99 or more fairly a token 0.01??? Apple have always made their dev tools available to all (great to ease the entry to development, or using free open source programs from source), and these petty (but not merely token) fees seem counter-productive IMO...

This can be considered an "incremental" update when compared with ~10.5GB for the full Xcode.app, albeit a hefty one. Any 7.3.x updates would likely be smaller.

@ sjk

v7.3.1 at 3.8gig is indeed smaller than 4.87 gig for v7.3.0, but not by a lot. There must be a couple of tons of changes even in this sub-incremental update.
