Weekly round-up: Java 12, IntelliJ IDEA 2019.1 RC, Angular v8: Beta.9 & more
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, we had big news for Java developers with the release of Java 12. But that is not all, Eclipse IDE 2019-03 went live, IntelliJ IDEA 2019.1 Release Candidate became available and more.
Java 12 is here!
The most important news that came out last week was certainly the General Availability of Java 12! Although it is not an LTS release, it definitely brings some important features to the table. In light of the Java 12 release, we caught up with Donald Smith, Senior Director, Product Management for Java at Oracle to talk about the latest version, how the new release cadence has affected the workflow for the Java team, the new feature that he is most excited about, and more!
On the road to Angular v8
The betas keep coming!
The 10th beta is very generous; not only does it add support for TypeScript 3.3 (so don’t use the older versions anymore!) but there are also a bunch of breaking changes. Does this mean the RC phase is upon us? We’ll see.
In the meantime, check out our thread to have a closer look at what’s included in beta.9.

Istio 1.1 is enterprise-ready
It’s not far-fetched to say that Istio is one of the hottest open source projects right now; anyone who’s interested in microservices, containers and even serverless will find it useful.
Today, we’re celebrating the release of Istio 1.1. Since this service mesh is beginning to receive more attention from the enterprise world, the team has worked hard to make sure companies using it have a smooth ride; that’s why the theme of this release is enterprise-ready.
