Updated Vue.js Roadmap; Vuex v4.0.0-alpha.1 has been released; Kia King Ishii join the core team; Nuxt v2.12 released; Videos from Vue.js Amsterdam 2020 are here!

Hi there,

it’s been a while since the last issue and I’m terribly sorry about that. The last few weeks have been really high on anxiety with all that’s been going on right now in the world. I hope you are all safe and healthy! 💚

There are some good news though! First of all, lets congratulate Kia King Ishii on joining the Vue.js core team! 🎉 He has been doing an incredible job building vuex-orm and will now focus on working on the next versions of Vuex.

Speaking of which – Vuex v4.0.0-alpha.1 has just been released! This is the version of Vuex that will work with Vue 3.0 but keep the familiar API you know from the current version.

Wait, there’s more – Nuxt.js v2.12 is here! Among multiple changes it introduces a new fetch hook that allows you to fetch asynchronous data during SSR in any component that is being rendered (not just /pages components). 🔥 To sweeten it up, the Nuxt team also added support for TypeScript in create-nuxt-app v2.15!

Finally something to keep you busy during the likely extended stay at home: Vue.js Amsterdam have released almost 30 talks from the recent conference. You can watch the talks here with new ones added every other day.

And tomorrow (March 19) – you can join an online meetup with Chris Fritz and Rahul Kadyan organised by This Dot: Media.

Stay safe and see you next week!

Progressive enhancement is a feature of Vue that is not mentioned often, yet is one of the biggest strengths of the framework when it comes to adoption in large, already existing applications.
