– By Brendan McLoughlin

Ember Data 2.3 beta.1, the branch of Ember Data that will be released as stable in roughly six weeks, is also being released today.

Changes in Ember Data 2.2

There are no new features introduced in Ember Data 2.2. Instead the this release contains bugfixes and documentation improvements for Ember Data.

See the Ember Data 2.2.0 CHANGELOG for a full list of all changes.

Ember Data 2.3 beta

Ember Data 2.3 beta is released today, and in six weeks it will become the new stable version of Ember Data.

Ember CLI Addon

Previously the primary way of consuming Ember Data was using the bower package. The existing Ember Data addon for Ember CLI added Ember Data to the bower.json file. This often lead to some confusion because updating the version of the Ember Data addon on packages.json would not update the version of Ember Data included in your app.

Starting in the Ember Data 2.3.0 release, Ember Data will be packaged and distributed as an Ember CLI addon. This will allow users to consume Ember Data in the same way that they would any other addon. Additionally, contributing to Ember Data should be easier as building and testing the Ember Data project now follows Ember CLI addon conventions.

Thanks to fivetanley for his hard work in porting Ember Data to the addon infrastructure.
