Swift 5.10 - changes regarding C++ interop and advancements on multi-platforms

Swift 5.10 is released! Well done Swift team and thanks a lot.

I read the very good release description here Swift.org - Swift 5.10 Released and understand that Swift 5.10 focuses on concurrency checking.

Beyond the focus on concurrency checking, I would like to know if Swift 5.10 has anything advacncements on Cxx interop side and also if there are any changes to know about the Windows version (any information relevant to Linux is also welcome).

Thanks

Thank you for the info !

Looking at the <swift/bridging> header, it looks like there is no update. I'm looking forward for some C++ interoperability updates in the next release, since the reference counting is often unreliable, but I'm still happy we have this feature.
