Does this version support Xcode 10 ? As far as I know Katalon 5.7.1 had no support for the latest release of Xcode i.e. Xcode 10. When I was testing an iOS app on Katalon, I am facing an error (attached in image)

This version does not support Xcode 10. It will be evaluated and supported in later versions.
