Today the Ember project is releasing version 4.2 of Ember.js, Ember Data, and Ember CLI.
This release kicks off the 4.3 beta cycle for all sub-projects. We encourage our community (especially addon authors) to help test these beta builds and report any bugs before they are published as a final release in six weeks' time.
