Today we are starting the Early Access Program for AppCode 2017.3 and the first build is already available for download on our site.
While our team continues to work on performance improvements for Swift and mixed code, this build delivers several improvements for resolution, parsing, and completion in Swift:
- Correct resolve for modules used in Swift in Objective-C code (OC-15587)
- Support for the
#dsohandledebug identifier (OC-14546)
- Resolution improvements related to smart keypaths in Swift 4 (OC-15992, OC-15864)

- Fix for the issue with duplicates in completion when parent class and protocol have a common parent (OC-15553)

This build also brings a heap of improvements in the C++ language engine including:
- Major reworking of list initialization inspections;
- Support for
- Full support for the
__COUNTER__macro and more.
