Swift and the new 2.2 release (Linux)


(louislepegue) #1

Hi Linux-Swifter!

Where is the Swift Linux compiler?

I've installed many beta version of Linux Swift since December 2015 without any problems.

Then starting March 16, some buggy version appear. In fact, the compiler (not the REPL) is no more working.
In the latest version 2.2 (March 21). The compiler swift-build is gone from the package!
I've tested on Linux Mint 17.3 with the Ubuntu 14.04 version and on Ubuntu 15.10 with the Ubuntu 15.10 version with the same problem.

Do I have missed something or Apple have changed the product ?

Thank for taking time to reading this.

This Swift Package Manager (swift-build) is not included in Swift 2.2. This was called out in the release announcement:

  https://swift.org/blog/swift-2-2-released/

The Swift Package Manager remains something in development, and you can use the development snapshots to use it.
