  • Swift-NIO is now the default network engine via the Kitura-NIO package. If for some reason you require the old Kitura-net package, you can still enable it by setting an environment variable KITURA_NIO=0 during build.
  • Most Kitura packages have been updated to require at least Swift 5.2 in order to maintain backward compatibility.
