Plans for the Vue.js 3.0 release; Both Nuxt.js and NativeScript-Vue hit the 2.0 release!


Hope you don’t mind the two weeks break – Vue.js London was a blast! 💥

Probably the most exciting news this week – the plans for the upcoming Vue.js 3.0 release! 🔥

Unless you’re into mobile development. In that case I have an even better news – NativeScript-Vue 2.0 has been released!

Speaking of releases – the long awaited Nuxt.js 2.0 version has finally been released! On stage. During the Vue.js London conference. Here’s proof.

Plans for the Next Iteration of Vue.js

So here it is – the official sneak peek of what’s to come in the upcoming 3.0 release of Vue.js.

TL;DR: smaller, faster, proxy-based reactivity, decoupled internal modules, written in TypeScript, custom render API, changes to render functions (though the template syntax stays 99% the same), and much more!

Nuxt.js 2.0: Webpack 4, ESM Modules, create-nuxt-app and more!

The long awaited Nuxt.js 2.0 release is finally here. Changes include the addition of create-nuxt-app, and an update to Webpack 4 & Babel 7. A full list of changes can be found here.

Behold! NativeScript-Vue 2.0

NativeScript-Vue 2.0 is here! Some of the important changes include: Vue-Devtools support, making all the NativeScript elements into Vue functional components (so they show in the devtools), Sidekick integration as well as support for NativeScript UI components. On top of all that – new docs!
