After we released Swift in beta on the 1st June, we are now adding support for long awaited Swift 5.8.1 and Xcode 14.3.1. This release also brings better support for Swift 5.x on Linux, which now supports versions up to and including 5.8.1.

Swift 5.8.1 support is available starting with CodeQL version 2.13.5. Code scanning users on will automatically benefit from the latest CodeQL version, while those on GitHub Enterprise Server can update using these guidelines. Security researchers can set up the CodeQL CLI and VS Code extension by following these instructions.

While our Swift analysis support remains in public beta we welcome your input. If you have any feedback or questions about the Swift beta, consider joining our community in the #codeql-swift-beta channel in the GitHub Security Lab Slack.
