Concurrency interoperability with Objective-C
The Swift language comes with a set of concurrency features that includes asynchronous functions and actors. The Objective-C language doesn’t have them, so asynchronous APIs are expressed manually through the use of completion handlers. Because the tight integration between Swift and Objective-C APIs is an important part of the developer experience on Apple platforms, Swift 5.5 added Concurrency interoperability with Objective-C.
AppCode 2022.2 now supports it as well, which includes the following:
- Correct code resolve in Swift for Objective-C asynchronous functions.
- Support for actor interoperability with Objective-C.
- Various Objective-C attributes like
__attribute__((swift_async_error(...)))are handled correctly.
Another new Swift feature now supported in AppCode is the existential
any. The scope of IDE support includes:
- Correct code parsing and type checking.
- Code completion and code generation.
- Changes to the code formatter.
The completion for
any is planned for the future versions (OC-22899).
Among other fixes for Swift language support, it’s worth mentioning a few pertaining to multiple trailing closure syntax (OC-20682, OC-22592). In addition, there are a couple of fixes for module maps in AppCode (OC-22526, OC-19757).
