[swift-users] swift 4.0 "swift-version 4" errors with "type(of:"

When running the compiler using the "-swift-version 4" flag, the compiler
complains about creating a dynamic type. Errors are flagged from within
concrete base classes and also within protocol extensions.

*error: cannot invoke 'type' with an argument list of type '(of: Self)'*
*                let newObject = type(of: self).init()*

Has this changed?? Are we supposed to create dynamic types a different way

Thanks, Ed
