Aurelia Release Notes - September 2019

Posted by Rob Eisenberg on September 10, 2019

This month, we've got a number of improvements and fixes to the Aurelia CLI, as well as a number of smaller updates to various parts of Aurelia's core and its plugins. Stay tuned for our upcoming blog post on Aurelia vNext!

Major Releases

Major updates may include breaking changes, new features, fixes to bugs, and performance improvements.

aurelia-dependency-injection 1.5.0

This release of the DI library has no breaking changes in terms of functionality, but does update many of its TypeScript type definitions to be more accurate for TypeScript users. To reflect this, we've bumped the minor version but added this special note for TypeScript users, as their projects may require some fixup if they were directly accessing DI library APIs in ways not compatible with the type system.

Bug Fixes

Breaking Changes

  • Added typings to a majority of the framework. Previously all instances retrieved from a container or functor were cast to any. Now they're typed by inference to the key. If the key is a class the instance will be typed to an instance of that class. If the key is a functor, it will be resolved to the return type of the functor. All other keys will be typed to any.
