The Ember.js Times - Issue #7
Hello Emberistas!

This is another summary of contributions to Ember and related community addons during this week: 
Ember CLI TypeScript version 1.0.0 is out 🎉 - Type your apps today!
Your typed JavaScript dreams have finally come true: the first major release of ember-cli-typescript is out and helps you to create beautifully typed Ember apps today. 
Improvements from the previous beta releases included, among others, a bug fix for the correct compilation of *.ts files from addons and for the import of plain JavaScript files into typed modules
Just run ember install ember-cli-typescript@1 to get started and also check out the documentation on how to update your app if you have been using a previous minor or beta release of this addon before. Last, but not least, check out the great write-up by @chriskrycho on the release:

The RFC for a more straightforward environment selection process in Ember-CLI was further refined to allow sensible defaults for either generic, interactive or test-related command types. You can read more about @rwjblue's RFC in the Ember CLI meeting minutes and the active RFC.
Recent improvements for the FastBoot addon included allowing non-fingerprinted vendor files to be correctly loaded as assets and reducing testing times by avoiding redundant npm dependency installs, further work on the RFC for POST requests to the Fastboot server and several dependency updates. There is also a PR in progress to make it easy for app developers to import non-compatible FastBoot libraries using app.import.

The next release of ember-cli-fastboot will remove the ember fastboot command altogether. Please don’t use it in dev.
This week’s updates around Ember learning resources brought a bugfix for the “Edit page” links to Github on the Ember Guides and updates to several code samples here and there to use the new module imports syntax. 
Several–both small and more challenging–bug fixes are still waiting for your support to get resolved in the Ember API Docs as well.

Feel free to get started on any of the “Help wanted” issues in the repo; your help is always greatly appreciated 💖💛💗 
This week we would also like to highlight a long-awaited feature and critical improvement for Glimmer: Due to @wycats recent work on rehydration in Glimmer, important improvements for partial re-rendering of server-side rendered HTML, the progressive web app development story of Ember becomes even more compelling.

Check out the related changes on the Glimmer VM repository.

Short and sweet as always, that's already it and read you again in the next Ember.js Times ✨

Be kind,
Ricardo Mendes and Jessica Jordan
Until the next issue, happy Embering :)
