Re: Swift Consistency Guarantees?



Thanks! So there is no way to reliably get the most-recent version of an
object under all conditions.

Does the same apply to object listings? I.e., when a PUT of a new object
returns, can I construct a situation where a subsequent listing of the
container contents will not include the new object?
