If someone wants to tackle the “archeology exercise”, those might help
- SwiftInFlux has Xcode 6.1/Swift 1.1 history pretty well preserved: https://github.com/ksm/SwiftInFlux#changed-in-xcode-611 (unfortunately the project died down before Swift 2 came around)
- I have a copy of almost all Xcode 6—Xcode 7.1 Release Notes I can share privately on request
We have this document, which captures some of the evolution of swift over time in the form of release notes:
We’ve started updating it for behavior changes in Swift 2.2, and think that something like it is important so that when we do a release, we have a way to make sure that sometime important isn’t missed. Users like to know what’s new
That said, it has two pretty serious problems:
- It is missing content on what happened between Oct 2014 and the start of the Swift 2.2 cycle.
- It is a weird little text file off in an undiscoverable place in the source tree.
Fixing the former problem is a bit of an archeology exercise, the later problem is more of a content/design problem. Is anyone interested in tackling either of these?
