Vue-Apollo v3.0 has been released and now becomes a part of the official libraries;


Guillaume seems to have been very productive this week. Two new versions of his libraries have been released: Vue-Apollo v3.0 is here and has a new home – the library becomes part of the Vue core libraries, which means it’s now located under the vuejs org.
