Hello everyone from the Swift community! I’m really excited to see
swift-driver which is far clearer and more readable than the existing driver written in C++. I’m a little curious about the state of this project, and the questions are:
- In README, we’ve listed some development goals of
swift-driver, which are really exciting. Are they all implemented by the existing driver, or they contains features that the existing one isn’t going to support?
swift-driverbe shipped with Swift toolchain before all the items on the list are checked?
- Is there any estimation on which Swift version will switch to the new driver? Are we expected to see this in Swift 5.x?
- If I’d like to improve the driver, should I patch on
swift-driveronly, or patch on both drivers?
Thanks a lot!
