Swift announced a new open-source package and enhancement to the Swift Evolution process, the Standard Library Preview package.
The package provides access to functionality from the recently approved SE-0270 proposal, which includes operations on subranges of collections, such as ‘subranges(where:)’ and ‘moveSubranges(_:to:)’, as well as the supporting ‘RangeSet’ type.
Users can provide their implementation as a standalone SwiftPM package by opening a pull request against the new Swift Evolution staging repository.

“By leveraging the collective power of DataRobot and Snowflake, organizations can accelerate the adoption of data science and AI like never before,” said Chris Pouliot, VP of data science & analytics at Snowflake. “Through this expanded integration, we look forward to arming our customers with the tools they need to succeed in this data-driven world.”
Codefresh’s new pipeline debugger
Codefresh’s new live pipeline debugger allows users to add breakpoints and work interactively with the pipeline, similar to an IDE.
“While most CI solutions offer just a simple SSH connection to the builder node, we wanted to take pipeline debugging to the next level and allow you to debug your Codefresh pipelines in the same manner that you debug an application: with breakpoints,” the team wrote in a post.
Codefresh chief technology evangelist Dan Garfield will demo Codefresh’s CI/CD platform with the live CI/CD debugging tool at the Software Architecture Conference in New York this month.
