Wow, this is just the 2nd issue of this newsletter and nearly 300 developers subscribed to it, already! All thanks to Dave
and others from the community
for spreading the word. Thank you! 🙏
I heard your feedback: You’re right, the first issue was too long. Partly because it was never planned to be released as a newsletter, and partly because it was the first, so I gave a (lengthy) introduction. Despite covering more proposals today, this issue is only ~60% of the length! (2,400 words → 1,500 words)
The two main focus topics on Swift Evolution this past month both sound a bit scary: Regular Expressions and Existentials. But don’t worry: The Regex story can be broken down to “Swift is making them less scary!”. And I didn’t know what an “Existential” was before writing this issue myself — I’ll explain!
