    Question Swift for iOS 8

    Hello friends of ClickTeam, would the introduction of this new programming language be a problem for the iOS Exporter?

    I also wanted to ask if Metal SDK can be integrated into the exporter to not be left behind in speed of drawing of our games?

    I would expect swift/the new xcode to be backwards compatible.. Apple don't want to make their entire app library obsolete... Depending on how the runtime works.. I'd be hopeful CT can use metal sdk / swift to get more performance boosts out of the ios runtime.

    That would be nice in the future, but as far as i could tell, swift+metal will only be compatible with ios8+ so it's no problem having it delayed for a while. One of my two test devices can only run ios6, and i am sure there are many clickers with devices that only support ios7-, would be a shame to not be able to use them.

    Thus it is, what worries me is that Apple push to Swift and allow obsolete ObjetiveC.

    From what I understand MMF uses a vm on Apple and will remain that way until MMF3.

    Our first hope should be to lose the vm for performance.

    Objective-C will most likely be supported for a very long while.
    The Swift programming language uses the already existing Objective-C runtime code so everything can work side-by-side without problems.
