AMAZING FEATURES

The Swift Mailing Lists are a fantastic resource. However, accessing the information in a convenient way is difficult: The web archive is not easy to navigate, and when you subscribe to a list you're bound to the UI of a mailing list. Even worse, you can't see any messages posted before you subscribed.

Hirundo (Latin for 'Swift') is a convenient way to browse and follow the discussions in the Swift mailing lists like Swift-Evolution or Swift-Dev. You can even bookmark messages of threads because they contain important information
