🎉 Vue Loader v15 released! 3 new videos from VueConf US and more!


🎉 I’m happy to announce that the Vue Loader v15.0 has just been released! Check out the updated docs!

Keep in mind that the new release comes with several breaking changes, so if you’re on a project bootstrapped with the vue-cli 2.x, you should probably not update to the new version if you’re not ready to migrate your webpack config. Of course, the documentation includes a migration guide.

As promised, here are the 3 new recordings from the recent VueConf US conference.
