I’ve not talked about it in this newsletter yet, but for the last four months, Sven and I have been doing a bi-weekly Twitter Space called “Swift Package Indexing”.

We’ve tried a few different formats, but it has settled on being a casual chat about what’s going on with development on Swift Package Index, a discussion of upcoming features, package recommendations, occasional interviews with package authors, and even a semi-regular quiz.

Twitter Spaces is very convenient, but it’s far from ideal in terms of both recording and consumption. We had a few requests for it to be a more traditional podcast, so we re-launched it this week. We liked the live-listening aspect of Spaces, so we kept that by streaming it to YouTube live, and there’s a podcast feed in the works, too!

I’d love it if you’d give this first re-launch episode a listen/watch on YouTube. We already scheduled the next episode, so set a reminder to listen live. Or, if you prefer to listen to it as a podcast, I’ll have the feed URL for you next week.

We’d love any feedback about the idea, format, or topic suggestions. Hit reply and let me know what you think!

And finally...

I just heard a rumour that Xcode 15 will include an $8/month “Xcode Blue” subscription that changes the colour of your Xcode icon to a slightly different shade of blue and gives you the signing keys for any company you’d like to sign apps as.

I can’t wait! 😂
