Hi everyone,

Swift 3.1 is still in convergence (having branched off already from master), but I’ve gone ahead and posted a blog post about the release management process for Swift 4.0:

  https://swift.org/blog/swift-4-0-release-process/ <https://swift.org/blog/swift-4-0-release-process/>

The process is very similar to Swift 3.1 and previous releases.  The announcement also calls out the source compatibility goals for Swift 4, with the two language modes (-swift-version 3, -swift-version 4) supported by the compiler.

The final branching date for Swift 4 is TBD, but announcements will be made as the release progress once that date gets determined.  Likely at this the point the final branch date for Swift 4 would be in June, but that is purely tentative at this point.
