  • You can now compare tuples up to arity 6
  • Compile-time Swift version checking
  • More keywords can be used as argument labels
  • Renamed debug identifiers: #line, #function, #file
  • The ++ and -- operators are deprecated
  • Traditional C-style for loops are deprecated
  • Tuple splat syntax is deprecated
  • var parameters have been deprecated
  • Stringified selectors are deprecated
  • New documentation keywords: recommended, recommendedover, and keyword
