I want to write about something less controversial today after all the responses to last week’s comment. 🤕 Although, I must have had some level of balance as people accused me of being both too kind and too harsh to Apple. 😂 Most people thought I was being too lenient towards Apple, though, and I don’t mean to be flippant. I understand that many of you are angry and disappointed.

So, I thought I’d take this week’s comment to tell you about a fun new feature we just added to the Swift Package Index. 🚀

I’ve talked about the build system before. It’s a massive part of the package index, but it’s hidden away out of sight. People are often quite surprised that the compatibility matrix on every package page comes from a real-world compilation of up to 36 builds every time a change to the default branch or a new release appears. At the time of writing, we’ve processed ~3,000 builds in the last 24 hours and almost 40,000 in the past month. It works hard. 😅

So what’s the new feature? We just launched a new page, partly as a troubleshooting page for us, but also as a curiosity for anyone interested (yes, this is you!). You can take a live look at the most recent 200 builds that the system is processing. We hope you find it interesting and that it shows off a little of what’s going on behind the scenes! 🤖

While we’re on the subject of real-world compatibility, did you know that you can use our build system to give potential users of your packages always up-to-date compatibility information about what platforms and Swift versions you support? We launched badges a while ago, but the details were at the bottom of a rather long blog post, so you may have missed them! If you maintain a Swift package, you can show your potential users always up-to-date compatibility information. There’s information on how in the green callout on this page. 🚀
