I have now created a version of Swift 3.0.2 (the most current stable version) for Fedora 25, and have confirmed it works with the jet-brains CLion EAP IDE with the excellent swift language plugin. All advanced features such as GCD, SwiftPM, GLibc binding and the debugger seem to work.
you can get the pre-built release and the install instructions below

While they say "Linux" what they really mean is "Ubuntu Linux", as the binary builds provided are built against Ubuntu 14.10 or 15.02.
You can technically run these binaries on fedora but it requires a lot of hackery, symlinking missing library versions to others that are available in the f22 or 23 repos.
So I decided to see if it would be possible to build the swift compiler suite on fedora, and it turns out it is, with a few caveats.
I have put the script I used on github ( https://github.com/thawkins/fedora-swift ) and encourage people to give it a try. Let me know about your experiences and if you create any fixes for any problems then please pass them back to me.
Right, I'm off to learn swift.... ohhh and get the swift mongodb driver I found up and working.

This is my first post from my android tablet, i took the dive and got myself a super Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2, with LTE. Its night and day compared to my old Note 10.1. So much so that I got the bluetooth case/keyboard that goes with it, because its close to being an ultrabook.
Anyway this is my first post direct from the tablet, on the move, from a "Mr Dougnuts" store in Greenhill mall in pasig.

Been building content/community sites again and my latest site is
Microfabricator.com is a new news, forum, and social content site for the 3D Printing community. We will also be hosting the design and build of the the "Photon" 3D printer on this site.
more than 70% of the structure is it self printed, so its ideal for bootstrapping.
