Goals for the next generation
2.0 is the opportunity to improve what we call things in the Swagger specification—one of the hardest problems in computer science1.
API design-first workflow
A human-friendly YAML syntax and editor make it easy to create an API spec from scratch.
Extending the metadata
Grow the format to include SLA information, vendor extensions, and other useful metadata.
Code generation and Swagger UI will get a major refresh following the new spec.

How big a deal is this?
Swagger is estimated to have around 10,000 deployments in production. The Java client alone has been downloaded over 500k times. Swagger means business.
How can I help?
We're looking for designers, developers, and people who just think a lot about APIs. If that sounds like you, then come help a great, open source project get even better.
