SwiftNIO – it's like Netty, but written for Swift

Straight outta Cupertino: a low-level tool for building high-performance networking applications in Swift. It particularly targets those use-cases where using a "thread-per-connection" model of concurrency is inefficient or untenable. This is a common limitation when building servers that use a large number of relatively low-utilization connections, such as HTTP servers. Could this be a first step toward Swift-powered servers running all around the globe? Maybe Apple will finally be able to ditch WebObjects... 😉

Swift Playgrounds 2.0

Now you can subscribe to playgrounds from your favorite third-party creators, then browse and download their content directly within Swift Playgrounds. This is quickly becoming one of the most compelling ways to learn how to code. It’ll be quite the master stroke if Apple can get the next generation learning Swift as their first programming language.
