If you’ve downloaded Xcode 8 beta 1, you’ve seen some of the great changes we’ve got coming up for Swift 3 on Darwin. We have been working in parallel on those improvements and the changes that we need to bring swift-corelibs-foundation up-to-date, including:
* new value types (SE-0069)
* new names for API and NS-dropping changes (SE-0086)
* new tests (mostly part of the overlay, not all merged to corelibs yet)
We plan to post later today a branch (name forthcoming) to the swift-corelibs-foundation repository that contains the first version of all of these changes. We’ve also been merging all of the other changes from master branch.
It’s not quite ready to merge back to master yet, so we would appreciate your help! Check out the branch, look for errors or omissions, and submit some PRs or send mail to this list.
Our hope is to merge this branch very quickly, in the span of a week or two at most. We will likely need to get some parallel PRs up for XCTest and swiftpm to help them adapt to the new name and type changes.
