Swift 3.0 and Xcode 7.3.x


(Patrice Kouame) #1

Swift 3.0 for Mac is currently being distributed with Xcode 8 beta.

Will a swift 3.0 toolchain for Xcode 7.3.x ever happen?

Currently having issues with the beta on El Capitan and my machine
is (apparently) no longer a candidate for future MacOs versions, notably Sierra.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Patrice. Unfortunately it’s unlikely that we’ll have a Swift 3.0 for Xcode 7.x, because it depends on the macOS 10.12 and iOS 10 SDKs. That said, we (Apple) would definitely like to hear about issues running Xcode 8 on El Capitan; if you haven’t already, please file a bug report at bugreport.apple.com <http://bugreport.apple.com/>!

Best,
Jordan

Hi Jordan - thanks for the quick reply (especially in the middle of WWDC!)

I suspected as much with 7.3.x (unfortunately), but I’ve heard of folks running a 3.0 toolchain (from swift.org <http://swift.org/>) with 7.3.x. Besides an unsupported playground, what other types of side effects can I expect? Just trying to prepare for my worst case scenario where Xcode 8 remains flaky on El Capitan for a while.

BTW: My Xcode 8 beta on 10.11.5 crashes repeatedly, very reproducible see my posts https://forums.developer.apple.com/thread/49000
and my open bug radar report # 26849825 “Xcode 8 beta IDE crashes consistently”. I hope Apple can take a look at this. This is my first beta that crashed out of the box. I hope this can get some traction. I’m surely not the only one.

regards,
Patrice

You won't be able to submit to the App Store with any alternative tool
chain (such as Swift 3).

Ouch! Good point.
I forgot that even the toolchain “snapshots” from the Swift team aren’t official Apple releases.
Hope my Xcode 8 on El Capitan issues get fixed soon.
