Cannot invoke 'sendAsynchronousRequest' in Swift 2 with an argument list

I'm currently rewriting parts of my Swift 1.2 code for compatibility with Swift 2.0. Actually I cannot figure out what changes are made to "sendAsynchronousRequest" - currently all my requests fail

NSURLConnection.sendAsynchronousRequest(request, queue: queue, completionHandler:{ (response: NSURLResponse!, data: NSData!, error: NSError!) -> Void in})

Cannot invoke 'sendAsynchronousRequest' with an argument list of type
'(NSURLRequest, queue: NSOperationQueue, completionHandler:
(NSURLResponse!, NSData!, NSError!) -> Void)'

Do you have any Idea what is wrong?


With Swift 1.2 and Xcode 6.3, the signature of sendAsynchronousRequest:queue:completionHandler: is:

class func sendAsynchronousRequest(request: NSURLRequest,
    queue: NSOperationQueue!,
    completionHandler handler: (NSURLResponse!, NSData!, NSError!) -> Void)

With Swift 2 and Xcode 7 beta, however, the signature of sendAsynchronousRequest:queue:completionHandler: has changed and is now:

// Note the non optionals, optionals and implicitly unwrapped optionals differences
class func sendAsynchronousRequest(request: NSURLRequest,
    queue: NSOperationQueue,
    completionHandler handler: (NSURLResponse?, NSData?, NSError?) -> Void)

As a consequence, turning to Swift 2 and Xcode 7 beta, you will have to change your completionHandler parameter implementation and ensure that your queue parameter is a non optional.
