Continuous Integration (CI) for the Swift project is now live.

The tool has been in the works for some time, but Apple has gone ahead and opened it up. It lets developers test changes in a pull request before implementation.

Tests can be run on Mac OS X or Linux (Ubuntu), and was built for “cases where ports to other platforms or architectures reach a critical mass and support from the Swift development community.”

Any member of the community with commit access can use CI, which shows a pass/fail result along with a link to details on the test. When a test is finished, results show up in the pull request itself.

Powered by Jenkins, CI also has a handy portal where you can view the build and test status of all jobs.
