I stopped mentioning every release of Xcode here a long time ago, but I'll make an exception for the beta of 11.4 that Apple released this week. It's significant.

Swift 5.2 (including the diagnostic architecture changes), universal purchases between macOS and iOS apps (both Catalyst and AppKit), build speed increases, massive simulator improvements (including simulated remote push notifications!), package manager improvements, and the most critical bug fix of all. Finally. 😬

The full release notes are huge. You'll want to read them.
