Performance and Tooling support


(Nabeel Imtiaz) #1

Hi,

Clearly, some of the biggest selling points of Swift are high performance, deterministic memory management and a lot of zero-cost abstractions. This opens up an avenue for server-side, systems and embedded programming specially now when Swift is open source. But tooling is extremely important as well. Is there any ongoing effort or roadmap for tooling support like memory leak detectors and overall runtime performance optimization radars or benchmarks etc for swift 2.2 or 3 and onwards?
