:warning: Be Advised :warning:
We have begun rewriting the iOS SDK in Swift in order to modernize the code base.Please monitor the changelog for updates to existing interfaces but keep in mind that some interfaces will be unstable during this process. As such, updating to a minor version may introduce compilation issues related to language interoperability. Using symbols now defined in Swift may require using @import syntax from Objective-C and using C++ will likely require workarounds like creating wrappers in Objective-C.Please bear with us as we work towards providing an improved experience for integrating with the Facebook platform.
