The final sprint for the EmberConf CFP is ongoing, serialization in Glimmer has been improved and lots of bugs and improvements landed in Ember projects thanks to many, great community contributors this week. Here's a short excerpt of what happened this week:
There is still some more time left to hand in your talk ideas for the EmberConf 2018 Call for Proposals and the programme commitee is looking forward to hear about your ideas! No matter if you are an experienced speaker or if you haven’t done any public speaking yet, this is the chance for you to share your experience with Ember, Glimmer and Ember-driven projects. The CFP is public, starts out blind, and features a collaborative process to help you to improve your proposal. If you’re still brainstorming on ideas, be sure to also check out the summary of this year’s CFP discussion session about interesting topics with programme committee members and past speakers. If you have questions, you can drop them in the #conf-emberconf channel on the Ember Community Slack anytime. And if you’re already set to write down your idea, don’t hesitate to submit your talk proposal today.
This week’s updates to the Glimmer project included a new end-to-end build verification test ensuring the integrative function of the bundle compiler, the related code generator and the Glimmer app instance.
With the recent release of Ember v2.16, Ember CLI’s ember-try configuration now also reflects the retirement of 2.8 and the onset of v2.16 as the latest LTS release. LTS releases are a great way to focus core and addon project support efforts on relevant release candidates. You can read more about the specifics of the Ember LTS releases in the official blog post.
