It’s only been 2 weeks since we released the first public beta of Swift, and we already got a lot of feedback. Thanks to all of you who joined the MUC and sent us their comments and bugreports!
We decided that, before moving on to implementing the remaining missing features, we would first fix a bunch of small-yet-annoying ‘papercut’ bugs, and quickly release a new beta. This way, we hope to make the Swift experience a bit smoother for our valiant testers while we are busy implementing some of the larger changes. So, if you’re running Swift on a frequent basis, or would like to jump into our beta feedback cycle, head on over to the Swift 1.0beta2 page, and download the latest beta (we even have Ubuntu packages now!)
We are aiming to put out new betas on a regular basis, so stay tuned for more Swift goodness!
