Swift: The Blog
In yet another sign of a more open Apple, the company has debuted a new blog dedicated to its new Swift programming language. Promising to provide a “behind-the-scenes look into the design of the Swift language” from Swift engineers, the blog currently has only one entry, but it’s a good one: an announcement that the Xcode 6 beta is now available for free download (formerly, downloads of Xcode betas required a paid Apple developer account). As the blog has no reader comment capability, we don’t foresee the blog becoming a forum in which developers can offer their own suggestions for improvements and enhancements to the language, so it will be interesting to see just what Apple does with the blog in the coming weeks and months.
I think that should say "formerly, downloads of Xcode beta versions required a paid Apple developer account."
Xcode release versions have been freely available for a long time. It was the betas that could be downloaded only via paid accounts.
You are, of course, right. Changed.
