Hi, will MacPorts support a newer version of Xcode (12.5.1) soon? I got the following issue

❯ sudo port diagnose
Password:
Error: currently installed version of Xcode, 12.5.1, is not supported by MacPorts.  For your currently installed system, only the following versions of Xcode are supported:  12.5 12.4 12.3 12.2

I don't know of any reason why using Xcode 12.5.1 would not work, so feel free to use it. We should add 12.5.1 to the list of supported versions.

Yes, that message from port diagnose doesn't mean the version definitely won't work, just that it hasn't been verified to work. Newer versions are generally fine. Maybe the message should be a little different when the version found is newer than any known version.

In 733d6e71b5aaf6cc3f6b4e9f0652db8ea39e392c/macports-base (master):

port diagnose: adjust Xcode version checking

Clarify that Xcode versions newer than any we know about are untested
rather than unsupported, which sounds less scary.
