On the road to Angular v8: Second beta in the house
The beta season for Angular v8 began in mid-January and we’re eager to see the final result. The second beta is already here so as soon as all the betas are out and the next milestone (RC period) is reached, v8 will be released.
It’s been a week since the first beta arrived and now the second one is already here.
Beta.1 brings two bug fixes, three features and one revert. More information is available here.
Results are in: Fully fledged Dart takes first in 2019 poll
Last week, we invited you to participate in our poll letting us know which programming languages are on your list for 2019. With over 1000 replies, the time has come to have a look at the results and what the JAXenter community has to say.
A week ago, we launched a poll asking you which programming language will be relevant to you in 2019. The results are in! Take a look at what you think will be relevant for you here!
JDK 12 enters Rampdown Phase Two
JDK 12 entered Rampdown Phase Two which basically means that the lineup is set – JDK 12 is locked in with 8 features, however, there are some fixes introduced since Phase One. The general release is due in March.
More than a month ago, JDK 12 entered Rampdown Phase One which basically means that the overall feature set is frozen and no further JEPs will be targeted to this release. Last week, we entered Rampdown Phase Two. The feature set is still frozen, however, the stabilization repository, jdk/jdk12, is open to select bug fixes and, with approval, late enhancements.
