Have you upgraded to Xcode 10.2? Yesterday, Apple officially debuted Swift 5
to the public along with the release of Xcode 10.2.
Swift 5 is a major milestone in the evolution of the language. Thanks to ABI stability, the Swift runtime is now included in current and future versions of Apple’s platform operating systems: macOS, iOS, tvOS and watchOS. Swift 5 also introduces new capabilities that are building blocks for future versions, including a reimplementation of String, enforcement of exclusive access to memory during runtime, new data types, and support for dynamically callable types.
If you want to learn the new features of Swift, I highly recommended to check out this Xcode Playground
created by Paul Hudson.
For our Swift books, we will definitely provide an update on Swift 5. If you’ve purchased the iOS 12 version of the books
, you’ll receive the update for free.
Again, don’t miss all the free tutorials we collected for you this week! If you have any comment on Swift 5, please feel free to reply this email and let me know.
