Property/Synthesize difference between debug and release

I'm declaring a property in my *.h file:

@property NSString * URL;

I add a "Synthesize" in my *.m file:

@synthesize URL;

Building and running in debug works fine. Making use of it and it seems healthy. Building release mode yields an error:  synthesized property 'URL' must either be named the same as a compatible ivar or must explicitly name an ivar

what am I doing wrong?

Seems like you make programs for Mac OS X and not for iPhone. I'm really glad. :)

You wrote:
@property NSString * URL;

so everything is by default: readwrite and assing are the attributes, the setter and the getter will be generated and will have URL and setURL names.

For NSString, I'd use retain or copy, but not assign. At least it is so for a common case.

The answer: the release configuration is 32-bit. The debug is 64 bit and so you can declare the property (it works so since Xcode 3.2.2?). For the 32-bit version we have to declare a variable and then the property. So for a test,  add NSString* URL into the class. If the project will be compiled in debug and release, so I'm right.
