Swift 5 – it’s alive!

its-alive.jpgIt’s been a couple of weeks now since Swift 5 has arrived, with a bunch of features, such as:

  • ABI stability
  • source compatibility
  • isMultiple – a fancy technique for checking if a number is a multiple of another number.
  • Dictionary compactMapValues – finally we can properly compactMap a dictionary!
  • Result type – handle results from aynchronous code in a much cleaner way.
  • Raw strings – again Swift has had some enhancement to handling Strings.
  • And more!

If you want to a refresher on one or more of these features, I go into them in detail in a new Medium post, you can check it out here.
