A Swift-C++ interoperability workgroup has been formed as part of the Swift project. The new workgroup is responsible for developing and designing the interoperability model between C++ and Apple-developed Swift.
A January 31 bulletin announcing the formation of the workgroup noted a “huge” amount of interest in bidirectional interoperability between the two languages. The workgroup will provide the framework for refining the interoperability layer’s goals and design and for discussing changes to the Swift compiler to support interoperability. The initial focus will be on rapidly iterating the development of the interoperability model between the two languages.
