    It seems amidst the support for Swift 4 we still don’t have anything on the roadmap for app extensions? These have become so integral for any production app these days – from Siri, Maps, iMessage integration, share extensions etc.

    Is the team able to start on support for this side-by-side with the Swift 4 support in any way?

    Keep up the fantastic work 🙂

      We cannot promise, but we’ll take a look.

    Any plans to apply the same cool refactoring tools from Obj-c to swift?

      In general, not for this release. We have a lot of general tasks related to the performance we need to finish.

    Better Swift support and performance improvements for the mixed projects are critical enhancements. I will look forward to 2017.3! Thank you!

    You should enhance project settings page. I had to open Xcode just to find and remove a missing copy bundle resource. Compared to Xcode it is not user friendly and functional.
