The state of Swift language servers

Does anyone know if the Swift team at Apple is working on a new Swift LSP language server? There was an update in April mentioning a focus on Clangd and LSP:

I haven't heard anything about it since. In the meantime, I plan to help improve https://github.com/RLovelett/langserver-swift, which seems to be the most featureful language server for Swift.

Sourcegraph is actively working on improving the accessibility and quality of language servers, and since Swift is a popular language, we are focusing on providing strong support for Swift.

I'd guess asking that question after Monday will yield a better chance of an answer :slight_smile:

(To clarify: I guess that would be tied to a new Xcode release at WWDC)
