Issue #100 - Vue 2.6.0-beta1, What the Tick is nextTick?, First Adventures with Nuxt, and more

View this issue online

Welcome to issue #100 of the Vue.js Developers Newsletter! 

It's hard to believe 100 weeks have gone by since I started this. Vue has certainly come a long way since then; version 2.2 was released in the week of the first issue, while this week sees the release of version 2.6.0-beta1.

The Vue community come a long way, too. Looking back at the articles I'd selected for the first few issues, the quality (and quantity) has definitely picked up since then!

It's interesting to think where Vue will be in another 100 weeks...

Anyway, the new features of version 2.6.0-beta1 include compiler error output improvements, a new build utilizing native ES modules in the browser, and a new API method Vue.observable() for explicitly creating observable objects.

Also, a new Vue RFC has been posted. The proposal is to change the scoped slots syntax. What do you think?

P.S. I'm curious...has anyone been reading since issue #1?
