'Cannot create a variadic tuple' error

Here's a function from the Dollar framework for Swift:

public class func bind<T, E>(function: (T...) -> E, _ parameters: T...) -> (() -> E) {
    return { () -> E in
        typealias TType = (T...)
        return function(unsafeBitCast(parameters, TType.self))

In the line with the typealias I get the Cannot create a variadic tuple error. When I remove the braces around T... then I receive the Consecutive statements on a line must be separated by ';' error. So, this is not a solution.

Does anyone know a workaround to get the error away?

This happens since XCode 6 Beta 6, which was (really) released today.

Getting blocks of 6 elements from an Array - Swift

This probably has a simple answer but i just cant seem to find it, Basically i want to be able to split an array up into blocks of six arrays, i can't seem to find any easy way to do it.

I've been using a method from https://github.com/ankurp/Dollar.swift

$.partitionAll(arrayToSplit, n:6, step: 6)

Which works great, but my app will only be usable on iOS8
