Swift: Opportunities for Language and Compiler Research

Chris Lattner's slides and speaker notes from IBM's Programming Languages Day with a sneak peak into Swift 5, which will tackle task concurrency:

"Planning for future releases is inherently fraught with peril, since we don’t know what will happen in this release, and we don’t know what help the open source community will provide. That said, we would like to start work on task based concurrency with a goal of at least the first pieces of it hitting Swift 5."
