Swift 4.2 in final convergence — swift-4.2-branch open for post-4.2.0 changes


(Ted Kremenek) #1

The Swift 4.2.0 release is now in final convergence. This means the release will only take critical changes at this point. If there is a change you need to take, please email or direct message me.

Convergence snapshots can be found here:

The swift-4.2-branch is now open take changes that aren't critical for 4.2.0 but are considered worth pulling in for a potential 4.2.1 release at some point in the future. These changes will not go into 4.2.0 unless specifically requested (see above).

The documentation for Float.random really needs to be updated to state that the algorithm is subject to change before 4.2.
