Apple announced that their Swift programming language will also be supported on the Linux platform.
Apple software chief Craig Federighi announced this during Monday’s keynote at the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference. He also announced Apple would make Swift open source.
The Swift programming language is inspired by C#, Python, Rust, Objective-C, Haskell and some other languages. Swift is extremely popular by Apple developers since its release one year ago, with thousands of App Store apps taking advantage of the Swift programming language.
Version 2.0 of Swift is planned to be released this year, according to Apple.
