How to present a new view using PresentationLink

SwiftUI’s PresentationLink is used to present new view controllers modally over existing ones, like calling present() on a UIViewController. To use one, give it something to show (some text, an image, etc) plus a destination, and let SwiftUI handle the rest.

Tip: In beta 1 and 2 this was named PresentationButton.

For example, if you had a detail view like this one:

struct DetailView: View {
    var body: some View {
        Text("Detail")
    }
}

Then you could present it like this:

struct ContentView : View {
    var body: some View {
        PresentationLink("Click to show", destination: DetailView())
    }
}

Unlike navigation links, presentation links don’t require a navigation view to work.
