If you’re a Mac or iOS developer, this is huge.

Prior to the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple has release Swift 3.0 preview 1, the tech preview for the latest version of its Swift programming language.

According to the Swift-Evolution GitHub page, the primary goal of Swift 3.0 is to “solidify and mature the Swift language and development experience.” As it turns out, this also means that there will be source breaking changes this time around, but Swift 3.x and 4+ are said to hopefully remain as source compatible as possible.

Developers can grab the preview as well as implement it into Ubuntu 14.04, 15.10 or directly into Apple’s Xcode. With WWDC 2016 coming in the following weeks, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to believe that later Xcode betas might have the latest Swift 3.0 previews already integrated with them.

If you’ve had a chance to play around with the preview and have any feedback to offer, let us know in the comments.
