Announcing setup-swift 1.5 for Swift environment setup with GitHub actions

Hey everyone!

I am excited to share version 1.5 of setup-swift release. I started developing this GitHub action due to limitations in existing actions:

  • Using development snapshots is not available or more complicated than it should be.
  • Delay in availability of latest Swift releases.
  • Parity with existing setup- actions for other tools, i.e. node, ruby etc.
  • Lack of or limited support of windows runners.
  • Performance limitations in macOS runners.
  • Lack or limited reliability of gpg signature verification.
  • Docker support.

setup-swift addresses these points and more giving you easier and secure experience of setting up Swift environment.

Special thanks to @stevapple for helping out in Windows runner support stability.
