Issue #102 - Vue 2.6 "Macross" Released, New in Vue: ES Module Browser Build, New v-slot Directive in Vue.js 2.6.0, and more

View this issue online

If you haven't heard, Vue 2.6 is out! This should be the last minor update to Vue before version 3.

There are more than 20 new features in 2.6 and just as many bug fixes - you can see a complete list in the release notes.

I'm a big fan of the new slot syntax, and I love the idea of unifying regular slots and scoped slots. It's amazing how Vue always manages to find the cleanest, seemingly obvious solutions to difficult issues!

You can read Evan's coverage of the new features here. I've also done an article on the new ES modules build.
