Does Version 7.0.4 work with Xcode 6.3.1?

I now sit in the middle of the Xcode 6.3 compatibility fiasco. The hoops
that RR must jump though on Apple's behalf is just sad. But as I always say
"If your worth a billion dollars then you make the rules...PERIOD". I have 2
iOS hard crashes that are fixed but held up by iOS 6.3 integration. I wish I
could have got a 6.7.3 GM2 or a 6.7.4 GM2 but that is not current RR

It seems that every time Apple updates Xcode it breaks LC, requiring the
team to set aside other work and rush another build out for that one OS. 
  Many of the 7.0.x/6.7.x builds seem to fall into that category, and those
of us waiting for resolution on issues for other platforms find this as
frustrating as I'm sure the team does.

Working with Android is smooth as silk by comparison, rarely requiring any
updates at all.

What is it that makes the relationship between LC and Xcode so brittle that
it requires revision with every Xcode update?

Is there anything that can be done to anticipate and work around what
appears to be a disregard for backward compatibility in Xcode?
