Vuex 4.0.0 is here! 🚀 New Vite docs and dedicated Discord sever; Vue Contributor days and more!

Hi everyone,

Great news! Vuex 4.0.0 (stable) for Vue 3.0 has been finally released! This is the version of Vuex that is 99% backward compatible with the old Vuex (v3) that you might be currently using in your Vue 2.x projects.

There are already works on Vuex 5, which will come with a completely revamped API. Stay tuned!

Heard of Vite? If you’ve been subscribing to this newsletter, you probably have! It just recently reached v2 (currently in beta), which makes it a completely framework-agnostic frontend build tool that is incredibly fast and extendable thanks to the plugin system. Just recently it received a brand new logo and now has a dedicated Discord server. Want to talk to other early adopters – join the server!

Events time! The Vue Contributor Days are coming on February 25th followed by the Vuejs Amsterdam conference the day after (Feb 26-27th). Both events are free, so don’t miss out!

I’d also want to thank my new sponsor – Thomas Findlay who has just recently released an advanced book on Vue. You might want to check it out now as it is 35% off this week! 💚

P.S. Sorry for the delay this week. Bento went through a hip surgery last Friday (poor puppy) and required some additional attention through the weekend. He’s adjusting and is now posing as Count Dracula every time he wants food. Send treats.

Teleport is a new feature in Vue 3.0, that allows you to teleport a certain fragment of the DOM to a different location in the DOM tree. This comes extremely useful for things like modals or popovers.

This is a part of the "New in Vue 3" series. You might want to also check out the next (#48) episode focusing on the Composition API.
