Swift 1.2 and Xcode 6.3 beta

I’ve been working on Shopper for a while and I’m mostly using Swift.

Development has been good, slower than it would be if I was using Objective C but I decided that didn’t matter.

These updates to the Swift language look nice and as I read them I wanted to update my code to use it. Apple makes it sound super simple:

To begin the migration, click the Edit menu, then choose Convert > To Swift 1.2…

Those ellipsis at the end make it a bit ominous. My position will probably be to test this migration to see what the impact would be and how much work it will generate and then revert the changes and keep working on the current version until 1.2 is on a stable build of Xcode that allows you to submit to the app store.
