πŸ‘‹ Emberistas! 🐹

Find out about the Ember 3.26 release, updated release of Unstable Ember Language Server, and addon roundup.

Ember 3.26 released πŸ₯³

Ember 3.26 release was announced on April 12, 2021. The release patched a few bug fixes in ember-source and ember-cli. It also introduced several deprecations in ember-source in preparation of the upcoming Ember 4.0 release.

We encourage you to make time to address deprecated patterns in your apps and addons. The Deprecations Guide provides examples of how you might update your code.

Here are 3 quick tips for what you can do for Ember 3.26:

  1. To make a route transition in a controller or route, inject the router service and use its transitionTo or replaceWith method. You can check the API Guides to learn more about the router service.

    For new code, using the router service shouldn't cause an issue. When you update existing code, however, your app may behave differently when the route transition occurs. Before any update, write tests that cover the intended behavior.

  2. When you invoke the <LinkTo> component with angle brackets, use named arguments to improve code readability. The arguments include @route, @model, @models, and @query.

  3. If you use Ember Data in a controller or route, inject the store service.

Need help with upgrading your app? You can ask questions in the Ember Discussion Forum or the #help channel on Ember Discord.

Updated release of Unstable Ember Language Server ✨

A new version of Unstable Ember Language Server has been published thanks to Suchita Doshi (@suchitadoshi1987) and Alex Kanunnikov (@lifeart).

The Unstable Ember Language Server is a VSCode extension that provides VSCode users features like auto complete, goto definition and diagnostics for Ember projects. While the name contains the word β€œunstable,” it is very stable and is actually a fork of the original Ember Language Server project.

This recent release adds batman syntax support (namespaces) to Unstable Ember Language Server so try it out today on your VSCode!
