- Conflicts to address before committing
• Account integration with self-hosted and cloud servers from Atlassian Bitbucket, GitLab, and GitHub
• Account logins generate SSH keys on-demand and upload to the service provider
• Rebase is an option when pulling the latest version of code

Editor enhancements
• Multiple cursors in the editor enable many changes at once
• Code folding ribbon can hide any code block surrounded by braces
• Over-scroll makes it easy to display the last lines of code in the center of the screen

Playgrounds and machine learning
• Completely redesigned REPL-like playgrounds are much faster and more stable

• Interactively train and exercise new Create ML models directly within a playground

Test and debug
• Debug symbols download from a device 5x faster than before
• Tests run in parallel across many Simulators to take full advantage of all CPU cores
• Custom instruments provide unique data visualization for any code
• Memory debugger layout is redesigned to make it easier to navigate and visualize the whole app
• Metal shader debugger inspects the execution of vertex, fragment, compute, and tile shader code
• Metal dependency viewer shows a detailed graph of how resources are used
