Xcode 7.3.1 crashes on MacOS Sierra Beta 5

Note: I have been using Xcode7.x with MacOS Sierra since Beta 1 or 2. It's worked just fine. I haven't touched Xcode 8 on this machine.

Since beta 5, suddenly I can't do anything with Xcode 7. I start it up and open my workspace and as soon as I change the view to another file or project or assets or anything, it crashes with the following error:

Anyone else come across this in beta 5?

Answer

From macOS Sierra beta 5 release notes:

Xcode Xcode 7.3.1 is not compatible with macOS Sierra. Workaround: Use Xcode 8.0 beta or later when running on macOS Sierra.

It should be possible to use swift 2.3 in xcode 8. From beta 6 notes:

For developers on macOS Sierra it is recommended that you move to Xcode 8. You can continue to develop with the Swift 2.x release with the included Swift 2.3 compiler until you are ready to migrate to Swift 3. Xcode 7.3.1 is not supported on macOS Sierra. (27224895)
