Happy 2018! It's time for the beta release of Ember 3.0 and the release of LTS candidate 2.18. Across all projects, so much quality work was done by contributors over the holidays. Thanks to everyone who helped make 2017 awesome. Here's what's happened this week:
On top of that, 4 major RFCs we have been writing about in the past couple of weeks have been finalized, namely: named args syntax, removal of the wrapper element around the application, template-only components, and the proposal for bringing ES5 getters to Ember. Some of those proposed changes are already implemented under a feature flag, so you can check them out on several Ember Twiddle demos (1, 2, 3, 4) or on the Ember canary branch in your own app by enabling the ember-metal-es5-getters, ember-glimmer-remove-application-template-wrapper, ember-glimmer-template-only-components and ember-glimmer-named-arguments feature flags.
