10.7: Xcode 4.1 for Lion is free on the App Store System 10.7
Something of a public service announcement; if you haven't noticed you can download the Xcode Developer Tools from the Mac App Store for free now.

This is version 4.1 and appears to be Lion-only. It's about a 3 GB download and one can only hope that Apple will implement the delta update system for Xcode, so you don't have to download the whole package every time there is an SDK change.

I'm grateful it is free again. So far installer has hung twice while installing. Anyone else have this problem?

From the time that Xcode 4 was first made available on the Mac App Store until Lion was released, it was a $5 purchase.

Yeah, I have the same problem, in Launchpad it just shows as "Waiting ..." and nothing happens.

i submitted a hint for this.. rather a workaround. make sure iTunes helper is not running in activity monitor first. force quit if you have to. after that install finished perfectly. :)
