SwiftShield v4.0.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-05-14 // 13 days ago
  • ✅ SwiftShield has been completely remade. The first version was highly untested, and new features were very hard to develop and maintain. The code is now highly tested, including tests that run xcodebuild and SourceKit themselves. Now, we're able to know if SwiftShield works correctly with newer versions of Xcode, and new features are easy to test.

    Functionality is mostly the same, but the usage details changed. Check the README for the newest set of instructions.

    • -sdk renamed to --ignore-public
    • ✂ Removed manual mode. Manual mode was created because the automatic mode was extremely unstable. Now that SourceKit works (mostly) correctly, the manual mode lost its purpose. If you were relying on it, let me know.
    • ✂ Removed Storyboard Obfuscation. This feature was untested, extremely hard to maintain and had tons of untreated edge cases. Since the usage of Storyboards is almost nonexistent in large projects (the target of SwiftShield), the feature was removed. SwiftShield will now only support view code obfuscation.
    • Revamped the example project.
