What’s the target timeline looking like for a complete GCD implementation? The GitHub page explicitly states that we’re aiming for Foundation to have a complete implementation by Swift 3, but there’s no milestone information for GCD.
(I’m hacking away at NSTask right now, and I keep getting reminded of how much I wish I could use GCD on Linux.)
(Or kqueues. Dammit, Linux.)
