The Ember Times - Issue No. 155

πŸ‘‹ Emberistas! 🐹

2020 Ember Roadmap published 🧭, release of Ember.js 3.19! πŸŽ‰, Rock & Roll with Ember.js Octane edition is here πŸ”₯🐹, Ember 101: new video tutorial series for beginners πŸ’», State of Frontend survey πŸ“Š, and last, but not least, ember-meta 1.0.0 release 🚒!

The 2020 Ember Roadmap

The purpose of the Ember Roadmap process is to rally the community around a number of shared goals. This post documents those goals for 2020.

Since the Ember community cannot predict the future, we cannot be sure that we will achieve all of the individual items enumerated here. Instead, the purpose of this document is to give the community a common purpose to aspire towards.

This year our two headline priorities are:

  • Polish the practical and conceptual details of Octane (tracked properties, Glimmer components, related tooling, accessibility, performance and payload improvements).
  • Make Ember easier to try and adopt, but also lower barriers for Ember developers when collaborating with the greater JavaScript project. We will do this through improvements and simplifications to the framework, and through focused communication with the greater JavaScript community.

Octane is Here

Ember 3.15 is Octane! Curious what Octane means for web development? This blog post will get you oriented.

For a write up of the technical details (upgrade strategies, deprecations, new Ember Data features) see the Ember 3.15 Release blog post.

Ember 3.15 "Octane" Released

Today the Ember project is releasing version 3.15 of Ember.js, Ember Data, and Ember CLI. In addition to brining new features and bug fixes, Ember 3.15 also marks the official release of the Octane edition, which is Ember's first edition release.

Ember developers using the Octane edition can exercise modern features like native ES classes, decorators, the new Glimmer component API, and a new approach to state management called tracked properties. Combined, these innovative changes to Ember are more than just new tools and APIs. Octane's features, together, sum up to a paradigm shift in how Ember applications are built.

Octane is coming in v3.14

Update: The timeline has changed since the initial publishing of this post, and Octane is not 3.14. See the Octane Release Update for the latest news.

The Ember community is wrapping up the work for Octane, and we expect to get it over the finish...
