We've been able to add content to Apple News for a while now but unless you were blessed as a partner, your only option was via an RSS feed. This week, they opened up the native publishing kit to everyone. There's a new version of News Publisher in iCloud and after a review process, you're in and can start publishing with the native format. What'll be interesting is to watch if anyone builds tools around this publishing process. The last thing you're going to want to do is to format content twice. Nick Heer has some thoughts on that too which are worth reading.
As you're probably aware, I'm not trying to cover everything that's going on in terms of Swift language development here on iOS Dev Weekly. Of course, I still post stuff that interests me but if you're looking for detailed coverage of all the changes, this is your occasional reminder that Jesse Squires is still doing a great job with his Swift Weekly Brief. You should be subscribed.
