Apparently the latest XCode (3.1.1) requires Leopard, but you can  
still upgrade your XCode to the latest version that's supported by  
Tiger (which is 2.5).

I can't find an easy way to point you to the right page, so here's a  
rough approximation of what you can do to get it:

(1) You'll need to register for an ADC account (it's free).

Go here: https://connect.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MemberSite.woa
Click on the "Join Now" button, if you don't have a login already.

(2) Go back to the MemberSite url above and login w/ your new account
(3) Click the Downloads link
(4) Click on "Developer Tools" in the Downloads toolbar on the right
(5) Search for "xcode 2.5" and follow the d/l links.

You'll get a *.dmg with the updated xcode tools you can then install  
as usual.
