Issue #79 20 Jul 2017
Written by: Jesse Squires
This week two more outstanding proposals were formally accepted, including the much anticipated String Newline Escaping proposal, and there was a new, last minute string performance proposal from Ben Cohen. Even more, two non-Apple contributors have stepped up to implement two accepted-but-unimplemented proposals. Keep in mind, we’re already on beta 3 of Xcode 9 so the clock is ticking! Unfortunately, the time is up for some. Joe Groff confirmed that conditional conformances will not make the cut for Swift 4 (sad!), but he made up for the bad news by revealing how dogs wear pants. And yes, this means Joe is back from his Twitter hiatus!
