Whatever happened to open-source Swift?

Jens Alfke
IIRC, at WWDC Apple said they’d open-source Swift by the end of September. Apparently that didn’t happen. Does anyone know what the status is, or at least have any good rumors?

+1 — I had the same thought yesterday. developer.apple.com/swift currently says “Later this year Swift will be released as open source.”

They didn’t say September, they just said “later this year”.

I believe around the time the Swift 2.1 betas started to appear, I saw an Apple person on Twitter say they’re still working towards open source, but they’re not ready yet. (I don’t know if being “ready” just means tidying up the code before they make it public, or if it means the code base has some hacks from proprietary parts of OS X that they don’t want to give away, or if it just means they need to do a long and painful audit.)

Correct.  We are still on track for "by the end of 2015" as promised, more details will come out when they can.
