Updated the iOS Objective-C code to use NSDictionary/NSArray/NSNumber literals and subscripting, for improved code clarity.

This requires at least Xcode 4.5 and the iOS 6 SDK to build, but it doesn't change the minimum supported runtime version (iOS 5.1). Less than 2% of iOS users are running iOS 5, so I hope developers aren't trying to build SDL using an SDK which doesn't support iOS 6/7...
     1 ================================================================================
     2 CMake build system for SDL (www.cmake.org)
     3 ================================================================================
     4 
     5 SDL's build system was traditionally based on autotools. Over time, this
     6 approach has suffered from several issues across the different supported 
     7 platforms.
     8 To solve these problems, a new build system based on CMake is under development.
     9 It works in parallel to the legacy system, so users can experiment with it
    10 without complication.
    11 While still experimental, the build system should be usable on the following
    12 platforms:
    13     
    14     * FreeBSD
    15     * Linux
    16     * VS.NET 2010
    17     * MinGW and Msys
    18     * OS X with support for XCode
    19

    21 Usage
    22 ================================================================================
    23 
    24 Assuming the source for SDL is located at ~/sdl
    25 
    26 cd ~
    27 mkdir build
    28 cd build
    29 cmake ../sdl
    30 
    31 This will build the static and dynamic versions of SDL in the ~/build directory.
