If you have not heard it already, the big news this week is that the port to Android pull request from Brian Gesiak and Zhuowei Zhang has finally merged after a month and a half of review and discussion. 🎉 👏 🙌 No matter what, this was going to be significant addition to Swift. However, as Dave Verwer noted in iOS Dev Weekly last week, it seems even more important given the recent rumors that Google may be considering Swift for Android.
As mentioned last week, the Swift 2.2.x milestone is still open and remains unchanged — all 33 issues closed. The Swift 2.2 branch is currently 363 commits ahead of master, but the most recent activity was 8 days ago. Maybe we’ll see an official release soon?
