JavaScript News and Updates (February & March 2020)

JavaScript News and Updates (February & March2020)

Welcome back to our JavaScript news digest! We hope that you are doing well during these turbulent times and still have an appetite for new JavaScript stuff. Over the past two months, there have been many new developments in the JavaScript world and we are anxious to share them with you.

In this article, we’ll learn about the top new features of Angular 9, discover how a new JavaScript scanning algorithm can help developers in dealing with open source vulnerabilities, why GitHub purchases JavaScript package registry provider NPM, what to expect from the upcoming DHTMX Gantt 7.0 and DHTMLX Diagram 3.0, and other interesting updates. Moreover, we’ll offer you some helpful materials that give interesting insights into JavaScript-related subjects.

New Tools and Updates

Angular 9

The long-awaited Angular 9 version has been released. According to the Google development team, the new version has become the most significant Angular update over the past few years that embraces the whole platform but does not include any breaking changes (i.e. the API, the syntax, and the ways of building Angular applications remain the same). So, what is so special about this release?

The most noteworthy thing about Angular 9 is the fact that the new rendering engine named Ivy, which has been in development for quite a long time, is now available by default. This important feature provides a bunch of important improvements such as reduced bundle sizes, enhanced testing and debugging capabilities, improved building process, and much more. To learn more about this major release check out the Angular blog .

Scala.js 1.0

After years of determined development efforts, the release of Scala.js 1.0.0 has finally happened. This compiling tool provides a lot of new opportunities for Scala developers in the world of front-end technologies, as it translates Scala code into its equivalent in JS and allows building robust front-end web applications using JavaScript libraries and frameworks.

It should be noted that developers of this version mainly aimed at simplification of Scala.js and its future-proofing rather than complementing it with new features. But still, the new version ensures some enhancements such as improved runtime performance, better interoperability with JS libraries, and enhanced portability. Developers using older versions of Scala.js have to be aware of the fact that the new release includes some breaking changes that must be resolved before updating to 1.0.0.

Sonatype Makes Open-Source JavaScript Safer

As JavaScript still holds top positions in many rating lists as one of the most flexible and powerful programming languages, it is not surprising that there are already 11 million developers who code in JavaScript and actively use open-source JS components. The increased use of open-source JS packages is frequently associated with security risks. That is why Sonatype has recently rolled out a new advanced suite of JavaScript intelligence capabilities for JS developers across the Nexus platform.

Sonatype’s open source governance platform ensures automatic control over open source risks. The core element of the new capabilities is a special JS scanning algorithm that can generate nice and clear vulnerability reports based on both manifest and file scanning.

The Sonatype team claims that enhanced support for JavaScript will offer developers improved accuracy, better policy control, and powerful capacities in detecting and fixing known open-source vulnerabilities via free (such as AuditJS ) and customer-only tools (automatic updates of npm packages) throughout the whole development lifecycle.

New DHTMLX Gantt 7.0 Version is on its Way

We are excited to announce that our DHTMLX Gantt library will soon be available in the 7.0 version. Known for its enhanced customization and editing capabilities, intuitive UI, and impressive performance rates, our pure JS and HTML5 Gantt chart component has already become a robust and proven solution used by developers for building efficient project management applications.

But there’s always room for improvement, and our dedicated team of developers put in great efforts to make the new DHTMLX Gantt even better. It is expected that the major release will enable some amazing new functional capabilities such as: running DHTMLX Gantt on the server-side, setting work time in minutes, merging several calendars, moving Grid columns by drag-n-drop, and much more.
