Release Notes


  • swift-autolink-extract now filters common Swift libraries from being duplicated on the linker invocation, reducing the number of times the linker must load these common libraries. This results in a significant reduction in memory use when linking on Linux. (59114)


  • Fix an issue in JSONDecoder where the decoder uses mismatches accessors on NSNumber for numeric conversion.
