Apple on Monday released Swift 2.2, which offers quicker code and is the first official release of the language since it went open source late last year.

Described as a minor release, version 2.2 produces faster-running code, according to Apple. It includes changes such as allowing most keywords as argument labels; these labels serve as part of the interface to a Swift function, describing arguments and improving readability.
